Deal Reached in KSU Lockdown Case

KSAL StaffJanuary 7, 2016

A man arrested in a series of thefts that led to a nearly four-hour lockdown of the Kansas State University campus has reached a deal with prosecutors.

20-year-old Johnathon Ryan Elliott has pleaded no contest to one charge of aggravated robbery. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop five other counts.

Prosecutors also agreed to seek the standard sentence, which could range from about 5 to 19 years in prison.

A police detective says Elliott admitted in an interview that he had been present for planning of the September robberies, provided transportation during the robberies and obtained some of the stolen property.

Two other people previously pleaded guilty to charges in the case. A fourth is awaiting a jury trial in March.
