PROVO, Utah (AP) -- An Orem man has been sentenced for his role in a 2008 armed robbery.

Fourth District Judge Samuel McVey on Monday sentenced 19-year-old James Falo to concurrent sentences of 10 years to life, five years to life, and three terms of one to 15 years.

Falo was charged along with his older brother, Jacob Falo, and Berniece Halalilo for taking part in a northeast Orem home invasion on Oct. 9, 2008.

Police said the brothers and a juvenile suspect went into the house early in the morning and assaulted the residents with a baseball bat. The victims told police one of the suspects held a gun to their heads. Halalilo was cited as the getaway driver.

In a plea agreement in January, James Falo pleaded guilty to charges of aggravated kidnapping, aggravated robbery, burglary and robbery.
