 A southwestern Michigan man has been sentenced to 300 days in jail for robbing migrant workers at a farm camp.
 
The Herald-Palladium reports  21-year-old Cleo Sims of Benton Harbor received the sentence Monday. It includes four years of probation. He's also ordered to complete 100 hours of community service and pay a fine, costs and restitution totaling nearly $2,600.
 
Sims apologized for his actions.
 
Sims pleaded guilty to unarmed robbery, acknowledging that he took money and credit cards Sept. 20 from workers at a camp in Eau Claire.
 
Under terms of a plea agreement, the charges were reduced from two counts of armed robbery. The second charge was related to an Oct. 1 robbery at a camp in Coloma Township.
 
Three others were charged in connection with the robberies.
