One of the two men accused of shooting and injuring a Glen Carbon teenager has pleaded guilty and will serve up to 15 years in prison.
Anthony Danley, 24, of Centreville pleaded guilty Monday to aggravated robbery, which was amended from the original charge of attempted armed robbery. As part of the plea deal, charges of aggravated battery with a firearm, a Class X felony, and aggravated discharge of a firearm, a Class 1 felony, were both dismissed.
Madison County Circuit Judge Kyle Napp sentenced Danley at the time of the plea to 15 years in prison, of which he will have to serve up to 50 percent.
Danley and Jermaine Harper, 25, of O’Fallon were charged on Nov. 13 with an attempted armed robbery and shooting of a 17-year-old from Glen Carbon.
According to the Edwardsville Police Department, Harper and Danley met the teenager in Edwardsville and an altercation ensued. The teenager was shot inside a car, then escaped, fleeing to the nearby Edwardsville Fire Station on Montclaire Avenue. He was treated at a local hospital.
At the time, police said the teenager was acquainted with at least one of the shooters. The victim has not been identified by police.
The case against Harper is still pending, according to Madison County State’s Attorney’s spokeswoman Stephanee Smith. Both subjects are being held at the Madison County Jail in lieu of $150,000 bail.
