According to the Centre Daily Times, former Penn State University wrestling standouts Patrick Cummins and Eric Bradley are now wanted in Pennsylvania for allegedly failing to appear Tuesday morning at a sentencing hearing for a 2008 burglary case.

The Centre Daily Times is reporting that the pair allegedly failed to attend their sentencing, which was scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday morning in Courtroom 2 of the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte, Penn.

The wrestlers-turned-MMA fighters were originally arrested in May 2008 for allegedly burglarizing seven PSU fraternities dating back to December of 2007. The pair are reportedly accused of stealing laptops, video games, iPods and cash, among other items.

The wrestlers reportedly cooperated with the prosecution, pleading guilty to the burglary charges while striking a verbal agreement that they would receive probation for cooperating. The case's prosecutor changed, however, and the verbal plea bargain was reportedly not upheld. The two were scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 11, but that date was continued to Feb. 15.

Cummins recently made his professional MMA debut in December, where the light heavyweight easily dispatched Terrell Brown on the undercard of Strikeforce “Henderson vs. Babalu 2.” A participant in the Sherdog Fighter Exchange experiment, Cummins traveled to Brazil with mentor Jason "Mayhem" Miller last year. Cummins was a national runner-up as a heavyweight at the NCAA championships in 2004.

Bradley is an EliteXC veteran who last competed in October. An All-American at 184 pounds as a Nittany Lion, Bradley holds half of his career MMA wins by knockout or submission.

Sherdog.com attempted to contact Cummins, but he could not be reached for comment.
