GREENWOOD, SC (FOX Carolina) -

One of two Presbyterian College football players who were charged in connection with attacks on three women at Lander University earlier this year, was sentenced to 23 years in prison Monday.

The attack happened about 10:15 p.m. March 21 at the women's apartment at Bearcat Village.

According to an incident report, two men stormed into their apartment after one of the women opened the door to see who was knocking. It said the men pointed guns at the women, and made them perform sexual acts.

Nine days later, police said they arrested Bobby Henderson III and Cameron Jones, both 19, and charged them with first-degree criminal sexual conduct, first-degree burglary and kidnapping.

On Monday, Jones pleaded guilty to criminal sexual conduct, burglary and kidnapping. He was sentenced to 23 years in prison, prosecutors said.

Henderson was awaiting a hearing.
