Sweet received credit for 484 days in custody. Gonzales received credit for 494 days in custody. Each must complete 50 percent of his sentence before he is eligible for parole.

Two other co-defendants, Martin Jacobo, 16, of Schaumburg, and Erick Estrada, 16, of Hoffman Estates, pleaded guilty to armed robbery in February. Both teens gave up their right to be tried in juvenile court. Jacobo was sentenced to seven years in prison and Estrada was sentenced to nine years in prison.

Prosecutors say the four men approached the victim and his friends as they sat in a car in the 600 block of Bode Circle.

Sweet announced the robbery and Estrada pointed a "bludgeon" at the victim, who turned over his cellphone and several dollars in cash, said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Mike Crowe at the February sentencing of Jacobo and Estrada.
