COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  A group of men connected to a North Columbus home invasion received their sentences on Thursday.

Twenty-four-year-old Raimone Boynton was sentenced to life in prison, whereas 20-year-old Richard Boynton must serve 25 years and 17-year-old LaDarious Colbert received 25 years, but he must serve 13 of those years.

Wednesday, a jury found all three men guilty on multiple counts.

The men, according to investigators, invaded a home on Perry Avenue last year.

We're told eight people were playing cards when masked men burst through the door, forced all of them get on the floor, and robbed each of them at gunpoint.

2 counts of armed robbery
