      Two men tied to a student loan scam have now been sentenced to jail time.

      Dontreal Jenkins and Trevayne Jones are both sentenced to 133 months in jail.

      The sentence came down through U.S. District Court Judge W. Louis Sands on Thursday.

      Both men are convicted of conspiracy to embezzle public money, embezzlement of government property, aggravated identity theft and fraud conspiracy.

      Authorities say Dontreal Jenkins and Trevayne Jones conspired with Princess Eatmon to apply federal funding and receive student loans and grants for students who didn TMt exist.

      Princess Eatmon was sentenced earlier in the year for conspiracy to commit wire fraud.
