SCRANTON, Pennsylvania — A man charged after police said he drove a friend to another state following the murder of a northeastern Pennsylvania college student has been sentenced to eight months to 2½ years in prison.
The (Scranton) Times-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1kUtixy ) reports that 19-year-old Kristopher Adkins of Scranton was sentenced Tuesday in Lackawanna County Court.
Police said Adkins drove 19-year-old Ryan Harding out of state a few days after Harding shot and killed 22-year-old Lackawanna College student Rashan Crowder. Harding pleaded guilty to third-degree murder last month.
Adkins also pleaded guilty to terroristic threats and possessing an instrument of crime in connection with a fight while he was out on bail.
Judge Michael Barrasse asked him "What on Earth were you thinking?"
Adkins replied "All I can do is learn from the past."
