LONGUEUIL, Que. - The ex-girlfriend of poker champion Jonathan Duhamel has been sentenced to 42 months in jail for her role in a home invasion, assault and robbery of her former beau.

Bianca Rojas-Latraverse had pleaded guilty to three of the five charges against her — kidnapping, break and enter, and conspiracy to commit an armed robbery.

With 18 months already behind bars, she will have a maximum of two years left to serve. That will be followed by three years' probation, according to the sentence handed out by Quebec court Judge Anne-Marie Jacques.

The attack on Duhamel took place on Dec. 21, 2011, at his upscale condominium south of Montreal.

Men barged in through his front entrance and beat him before stealing a gold Rolex watch, his poker championship bracelet and $115,000 in different currencies.

Duhamel had received the bracelet in addition to US$9 million in winnings at the 2010 World Series of Poker. The beating and robbery occurred a year later.

Two other suspects in the case, Anthony Bourque and John Clark-Lemay, are awaiting trial. Another suspect, Andres Valderrama, pleaded guilty.
