Aggie basketball signee ordered to spend 90 days in jail

Anthony DiLoreto, a freshman on the Utah State Aggie men’s basketball team, was sentenced Thursday in a Minnesota court to spend 90 days in jail for his role in an attempted bank robbery in Wisconsin. DiLoreto reportedly will serve his jail time over the next three summers, 30 days at a time, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. DiLoreto, a 7-foot tall signee for Stew Morrill’s basketball team, was involved in a botched bank robbery in Wisconsin in August 2008. A friend of DiLoreto’s reportedly planned to rob the bank, and DiLoreto was supposed to be the getaway driver. DiLoreto’s friend reportedly used DiLoreto’s sawed-off shotgun to rob the bank, but when DiLoreto heard police sirens, he fled the scene, leaving his friend at the bank, according to police reports. As part of the sentence, according to the Pioneer Press, DiLoreto was also ordered to serve three years of probation, 300 hours of community service and participate in a restorative justice program.
