Robber Changes Plea
K2's Ophelia Young reports, firstname.lastname@example.org:
A second man involved in a string of robberies late last year entered the equivalent if a guilty plea in district court today.
19-year-old Anthony Blackbonnet agreed to an "Alford Plea," under which he admits that prosecutors likely have the evidence to convict him in a trial.
Blackbonnet, along with his father and three other men, were charged in connection with several convenience store robberies, a Motel 6 robbery, and several home and car burglaries at the end of last year.
With today's plea, he faces a maximum of 15 years in prison. His father took a similar plea, and faces up to 50 years behind bars. Both men will be sentenced in the next couple months.
