PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI)- An Attleboro man has been sentenced for a 2013 robbery and assault on a Providence College student.
According to the Attorney General’s Office, 25-year-old Travis Lesperance was sentenced Wednesday to 12 years in prison and another 8 on probation. Lesperance pleaded guilty to the charges in April.
Prosecutors allege Lesperance and three other men conspired to rob Providence College students after a night of drinking. The group approached Douglas Biancur on Eaton Street. He and another assaulted Biancur, knocking him to the ground and rummaging through his pockets. Another man then repeatedly stomped on his head, rendering him unconscious. He was taken to Rhode Island Hospital with head and facial injuries.
