Terrence Cheeks

DES MOINES, Iowa – A judge sentenced a Des Moines 17-year-old to up to 50-years in prison Friday for a brutal car-jacking.

Terrance Cheeks was convicted of two counts of second degree robbery last April.

Cheeks was one of three people involved in the carjacking of Mike Wasike last year.

Wasike was pulled from his car, beaten and left for dead just blocks from his Urbandale home.

He suffered severe brain damage and remains at a care facility in Oklahoma.
