Report: Cummins, Bradley Sentenced to County Jail


According to the Centre Daily Times, former Penn State University wrestling standouts Patrick Cummins and Eric Bradley have been sentenced to one to two years in county jail and five years probation on felony burglary charges.

Cummins, 30, and Bradley, 29, were originally to be sentenced on Feb. 15 at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte, Penn., but the men reportedly failed to appear.

The men were convicted of burglarizing several PSU fraternities from December 2007 to May 2008. According to the Centre Daily Times report, the pair was sentenced to one to two years in jail for burglarizing one fraternity while the residents slept.

The five years of probation, which will begin after the men serve their jail sentence, was reportedly handed down for seven other felony counts of breaking into fraternities while no one was home.

Cummins and Bradley were arrested on May 30, 2008, and reportedly plead guilty to the charges, striking a verbal agreement that they would receive probation for their cooperation. The case's prosecutor changed, however, and the plea bargain was reportedly not upheld. Items allegedly stolen from the fraternities included digital cameras, television, computers and cash, among other valuables.

Sherdog.com could not reach Cummins for comment, and Bradley's contact information was not readily available at the time of publishing. Cummins' manager, Ryan Parsons, issued this comment:

“Patrick is looking forward to putting this behind him and picking up his MMA career where he left off. He has a bright future in this sport, and I expect him to go far.”
