BLOOMINGTON — A Bloomington man who participated in a home invasion last year in Bloomington was sentenced to 15 years in prison Tuesday as part of his plea agreement with the state.

Kendrick Cooley, 21, admitted to the home invasion he committed with Isaiah Miller, 20, also of Bloomington, and a third suspect who has not been identified.

Cooley testified recently at Miller's trial on charges related to the Sept. 7, 2016, break-in of a home on Oxford Court. A male victim was struck in the head with a gun during the incident that included theft of $5,000 and several items.

During Miller's trial, Cooley testified that he agreed to go along with Miller after he received a phone call from the co-defendant shortly before the trio drove to the victim's home. A person who knew the victims allegedly told Miller that a large amount of cash was kept in the home, according to Cooley.

Cooley may be eligible for day-for-day credit on his prison term and will receive 349 days credit for time he served in jail.
