AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State wide receiver Albert Gary has been sentenced to three years of probation after pleading guilty to first-degree theft. Gary also pleaded guilty Monday in district court in Ames to a charge of going armed with intent. Gary and others were charged with robbing a man on campus with a BB gun last June. Gary’s attorney, Matt Boles, says Gary will also have to go to a halfway house in Ames for roughly six months. The Ames Tribune reports that teammate Devondrick Nealy was also charged in the attack. Nealy pleaded guilty to a simple misdemeanor charge of harassing a public officer in November. He was given a deferred judgment and a year of probation.
