Man Accused in Burglary of Former Packer Pleads No Contest
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- One of the men accused of a break-in at the home of former Green Bay Packers running back Noah Herron pleaded no contest Friday to burglary charges.
Prosecutors agreed to cap their sentencing recommendation at three years in prison and five years supervised release for 21-year-old Joel Mullin-Romo of Green Bay. The three burglary charges carry up to 37 1/2 years in prison. Sentencing is March 20.
Also charged is 31-year-old Yeshua Tate, who is scheduled for trial March 5.
Authorities said Tate was hit in the head with a bedpost and knocked out by Herron after he entered Herron's bedroom during the break-in last May.
The Packers cut Herron before last season and he signed with Tampa Bay. The New York Jets signed him this month.
