Lake Superior Court Judge Thomas Stefaniak Jr. sentenced a 21-year-old Harvey, Ill., man to six years for robbery.
Niko Antonio Boyer admitted he and two other individuals wore hoods and items covering their faces on Oct. 11, 2011, when they went into the McDonald’s at 3639 165th St., Hammond. Boyer put four employees into a freezer while the other two men took money from the safe.
Deputy prosecutor Angela Mattozzi acknowledged Boyer had no criminal history and admitted he made a mistake.
Defense attorney Teresa Hollandsworth argued for leniency, noting her client has no prior criminal convictions and has mental health issues.
Boyer must serve two years in custody, and the remaining four years on probation. He also agreed to pay $1,327 in restitution.
