A 19-year-old Kansas University student pleaded no contest Wednesday to one count of making a criminal threat as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors.
Jaden M. Mackey was accused of approaching four people on a porch in the 1100 block of Tennessee Street on Sept. 1 and demanding money. The victims in the case said the suspect was wearing a mask and held a pocketknife behind his back.
The victims refused to give the suspect any money, and the suspect fled. Police arrested Mackey a short time later in the 1400 block of Ohio Street. Mackey was originally charged with four counts of aggravated robbery.
Mackey is scheduled for sentencing at 2 p.m. Dec. 14. Criminal threat is a level-9 person felony, and carries a penalty ranging from probation to 17 months in prison.
