Ex-Auburn DB McNeil pleads guilty to first-degree robbery

CBSSports.com wire reports

OPELIKA, Ala. -- Former Auburn defensive back Mike McNeil has received a 15-year split sentence for first-degree robbery.

Lee County Circuit Judge Christopher Hughes accepted McNeil's plea deal Monday as the trial was set to begin. Under the deal, McNeil is required to serve at least three years plus three years of probation and pay $2,000 in restitution.

McNeil and three teammates from the Tigers' 2010 national championship team were charged with armed robbery and dismissed from the team in March 2011. Antonio Goodwin is serving a 15-year sentence while Dakota Mosley and Shaun Kitchens are awaiting trial.

McNeil nodded to family members while he was led out of the courtroom in handcuffs. McNeil had 14 tackles in Auburn's win over Oregon in the BCS championship game.
