AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State receiver Albert Gary, who was charged with first-degree robbery, has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

Gary was accused of committing a robbery at gunpoint on the Ames campus on June 19.

The Des Moines Register says Gary pleaded guilty Monday to reduced charges of first-degree theft and going armed with intent, both felonies. He would serve no longer than three years of probation, pay $2,000 in fines and court costs and spend time in a halfway house.

A judge must accept the deal. Sentencing is May 21.

Coach Paul Rhodes says he won't comment on Gary's status until the legal process is complete. Gary, a redshirt sophomore form Ocala, Fla., caught 23 passes last season for 287 yards and two touchdowns.
