The first of four former Auburn Tigers allegedly involved in last year's armed robbery found out his fate on Tuesday.

Former Auburn wide receiver Antonio Goodwin was sentenced to 15 years in prison by Lee County Circuit Court Judge Christopher Hughes, according to Even Woodbery of AL.com.

Goodwin was convicted of first-degree robbery in April. He was the first of four former Tigers to go on trial for a March 2011 home invasion. Mike McNeil, Shaun Kitchens and Dakota Mosely were also arrested in connection with the robbery.

The four players were immediately dismissed from the Auburn program by head coach Gene Chizik after he learned of their arrests.

Goodwin's sentence is about what you would expect, considering the seriousness of the charges, writes Woodbery.

Judge Christopher Hughes' sentence was at the middle range of the Alabama Sentencing Guidelines.

The trials for the other three former players charged in connection with the robbery aren't expected to start until later this year.
