Robber Changes Plea


K2's Ophelia Young reports, oyoung@k2tv.com: 

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.
