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.
