The Auburn narratives keep unraveling. Five days after Selena Roberts went to bat for him, former Tiger safety Mike McNeil changed his plea to “guilty” on first degree robbery charges. He will serve three years in prison.
Former Auburn football player Mike McNeil told a Lee County Judge this morning that he wants to change his not guilty plea. McNeil is charged with robbery. McNeil said he wants to plead guilty to robbery in the first degree. After a short recess the Judge sentenced him to a 15 year “split sentence. He is required to serve three years in jail and then be on probation for an additional three years.
Jury selection for his trial was to begin in McNeil’s trial this morning. So much for the whole “Auburn made him a scapegoat,” he came from a “spiritual family” and he will try to vindicate himself at trial angle.
