Former Western Michigan football player reaches plea dealMay 17, 2017 9:45pm

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) — A former Western Michigan University football player has reached an agreement with prosecutors to plead guilty to armed robbery.

The Kalamazoo Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/2rgnCWU ) 19-year-old Bryson White of Mason, Ohio, entered the plea Friday. Court documents say prosecutors dropped charges of home invasion and larceny and won't pursue a firearm charge.

A sentencing agreement calls for White to serve 38 months to 15 years in prison. His sentencing is set for July 3 in Kalamazoo County Circuit Court.

Co-defendant Ronald George of Pittsburgh pleaded guilty in March to armed robbery. He's due to be sentenced May 22.

White and George were accused of robbing a woman at gunpoint last August after planning to smoke marijuana with her. The two were dismissed from the football team following their arrests.
