A man has pleaded guilty to charges stemming from the robbery of American Idol winner Scotty McCreery and some of his friends two years ago.
WTVD-TV in Durham reports that 21-year-old Mikkail Shaw pleaded guilty on Monday (June 27). He was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon.
According to police, three armed people burst into the apartment in Raleigh on May 5, 2014, and took wallets, cash and electronics. A search warrant says the robbers were armed with two pistols and an AK-47 assault rifle. They forced McCreery and his friends into a closet, then told them to count to 100 before they could come out.
The warrant says Shaw was identified through forensic evidence.
McCreery won TV’s American Idol in 2011.
