Of the four former Auburn players arrested in connection to a March, 2011 robbery, three have now been sentenced in the case.
The latest ex-player to receive his punishment is former Tigers wide receiver Shaun Kitchens. Court records obtained by al.com show that Kitchens pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery and will receive 3 years imprisonment as part of a 15-year split sentence. The sentence, which includes a $2,000 fine, was a result of a plea deal with prosecutors.
Kitchens, along with defensive back Mike McNeil, tight end Dakota Mosley and receiver Antonio Goodwin, was originally indicted on five counts of first-degree robbery, one count of first degree burglary and one count of third degree theft of property related to the incident.
McNeil, who was at the center of Selena Robers‘ Roopstigo.com story this past spring alleging more violations in the Auburn program, was also given a 15-year split sentence in April as part of a plea agreement. McNeil had insisted he was innocent and turned down multiple plea deals. Goodwin was sentenced to 15 years in prison last year and Mosley is still awaiting a June trial.
