EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - The last of three men accused of robbing the driver of a limousine bus carrying members of a bachelor party is going to prison.

A judge in East St. Louis has sentenced 26-year-old Devon Alexander of St. Louis to 12 years in federal prison. He pleaded guilty in April to interfering with commerce by violence.

Prosecutors say the holdup took place in November 2010 at a Washington Park gas station where the driver had gone for fuel while members of the bachelor party were in a nightclub.

Authorities allege Kenneth Little pointed a gun at the driver, and Alexander robbed the man of $1,000 after Floyd Gamble Jr. hit him.

Little already is serving a 12-year prison sentence, and Gamble has been sentenced to more than six years behind bars.
