February 8, 2012, 8:48 AM
MITCHELL, SD -
A second Dakota Wesleyan University student has pleaded guilty in dormitory room burglaries on the Mitchell campus over last year's Thanksgiving break.
19-year-old Darius Lawson pleaded guilty to one burglary count on Tuesday, and prosecutors dropped four other counts. He faces up to 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine, along with restitution.
Three other students were arrested in the burglaries. Eighteen-year-old Vincent Piercefield pleaded guilty in January. Both he and Lawson are to be sentenced next month.
One of the other suspects has pleaded not guilty and the other has not yet entered a plea.
