Two men were sentenced to 21 years in prison after pleading guilty to armed robbery at a Rolling Meadows Sprint store last August.
Christopher Nesbit, 45, of Markham, and Jerome Bruessard, 45, of Chicago, pleaded guilty Wednesday to armed robbery with a handgun, said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Mike Gerber.

The 21-year sentence includes six years for the robbery plus the mandatory 15 years for using a firearm, Gerber said.
Authorities say Nesbit and Bruessard ordered seven victims at gunpoint into a side room, then took about 100 cellphones.
Bruessard received credit for 202 days in custody. Nesbit, who faces charges in DuPage County for robbing a Naperville cellphone store at gunpoint around the same time, received credit for 227 days in custody.
