Longueuil, Quebec • The ex-girlfriend of poker champion Jonathan Duhamel has been sentenced to 3½ years in jail for the home invasion, assault and robbery of her former boyfriend.

Bianca Rojas-Latraverse pleaded guilty to three of the five charges — kidnapping, breaking and entering, and conspiracy to commit armed robbery.

She has spent 1½ years behind bars and will have a maximum of two years left followed by three years' probation. She was sentenced by Judge Anne-Marie Jacques.

Duhamel won $9 million at the 2010 World Series of Poker. He was attacked Dec. 21, 2011, at his condominium outside Montreal. Men barged through his door and beat him before stealing a gold watch, his poker championship bracelet and $115,000 in different currencies.

Two other suspects, Anthony Bourque and John Clark-Lemay, await trial. Another suspect, Andres Valderrama, pleaded guilty.
