A teenager has pleaded guilty in Angola to conspiracy to commit murder.
19 year old Tyler Lee Biggs faced charges of murder and conspiracy to commit murder, both felonys that could have put him away for as long as 50 years. If a judge accepts the guilty plea, the murder charge will be dropped.
Prosecutors say Biggs supplied the gun used to kill another person in July, 2013.
A judge will now either accept the guilty plea or reject it at a sentencing hearing set for June 3. If he accepts it, he must sentence Biggs to a term of no more than 25 years. That sentence could include suspended time and a period of probation. If it’s rejected, Biggs’ not-guilty status will be restored and a jury trial will be rescheduled.
