One of two men who robbed three Northwestern University students two years ago pled guilty this week and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Timothy A. Blue, 25, of Evanston, was sentenced Monday by Judge Marguerite Quinn at the Circuit Court of Cook County in Skokie for robbing three female NU students with a handgun in the 2000 block of Pratt Court on Aug. 19, 2012.
Blue had turned himself in to Evanston Police detectives on three days later with his attorney after police released surveillance footage that showed Blue in a 7-Eleven convenience store in Skokie where one of the victims’ credit card was being used shortly after the robbery.

Blue was identified after his arrest in a line-up and charged with the crime. The second offender was never identified and is still wanted for the incident. Blue has been in custody since his arrest.
