A judge has sentenced the son of North Carolina State basketball coach Sidney Lowe to 15 months in a low-security prison farm on dozen charges, including robbery and kidnapping.
Lawyer Locke Clifford said Tuesday that Superior Court Judge Henry Frye Jr. sentenced Sidney Lowe II to a total of 11 years in prison, but then suspended the sentence to 15 months. The judge also ordered that Lowe serve five years of probation.
Earlier in the day, the elder Lowe held back tears as he asked the judge for leniency. His son faced a maximum 23 years on the charges that stemmed from a pair of 2007 incidents.
