South NJ Man Sentenced For Robbing Rowan Students

GLASSBORO, N.J. (AP) – One of three southern New Jersey men who assaulted and robbed some Rowan University students is headed to state prison.

Twenty-three-year-old Landis Husser of Woodstown received a seven-year term for his role in the attacks. Under the sentence imposed Friday, he must serve 85 percent of that term before becoming eligible for parole.

Husser’s coconspirators — his 25-year-old brother, Lance, and their friend Ernest Watson Jr., both Woodstown residents — also got seven-year terms when they were sentenced last November. They had pleaded guilty in September to robbery and conspiracy charges.

Prosecutors say the three men attacked four Rowan students overall in two separate incidents in November 2008, taking their wallets and cell phones. The robberies occurred in parking lots near the university’s Glassboro campus.
