Former Florida defensive back Deiondre Porter received a six-year sentence on Wednesday, 11 months after he was arrested for a connection to an armed robbery, according to Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times.
According to Baker, Porter, 20, pleaded guilty in Jacksonville and was sentenced to state prison as a youthful offender. The robbery occurred last April at a T-Mobile store, which involved ordering employees to open the safe and the theft of cell phones.
Porter redshirted in 2014 for the Gators, before playing on special teams in 2015. He was arrested during October of the 2015 season when he was charged with four felonies and a misdemeanor for aggravated assault after pointing a gun at his pregnant girlfriend and firing a bullet near her. That case remains open, according to Baker.
