Last month, Iowa State wide receiver Albert Gary pleaded guilty to a charge of first-degree theft stemming from an incident last summer where Gary was accused of robbing a man with a BB gun. As a result of the plea, it was possible Gary could avoid jail time.
That’s turned out to be the case, as Gary was sentenced to three years probation today for his involvement in the incident. The probation was part of the plea deal. Gary’s attorney, Matt Boles, said Gary will also have to go to a halfway house in Ames for roughly six months.
Gary was initially charged with first-degree robbery, a felony that carries a maximum of 25 years in jail.
Gary caught 23 passes for 287 yards and two touchdowns last season, and was included in ISU’s spring depth chart.
