A Red Wing teenager accused of taking part in a stick-up pleaded guilty Wednesday to a felony charge.
Billy Harris pleaded guilty to simple robbery in a deal with prosecutors that calls for him to serve probation, Assistant Goodhue County Attorney Elizabeth Breza said.
Harris was accused of acting as an accomplice in a Sept. 22 incident in the 400 block of Ninth Street. According to charges, Harris was with fellow teen Samuel Wilkes, who awakened a man sleeping in his car by placing a replica handgun to his head and demanding cash. Wilkes was convicted in November of first-degree aggravated robbery and attempted aggravated robbery during a court trial.
