The 21-year-old man accused of robbing Scotty McCreery and his friends at gunpoint in 2014 has pleaded guilty to the charges. On Monday (6/27), Mikkail Jamal Shaw entered a guilty plea, but refused to reveal who his co-conspirators in the crime were. Shaw will be sentenced today (6/28) for multiple counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon and second-degree kidnapping. According to Raleigh’s News & Observer, Scotty was not at the plea hearing on Monday, but his mother, Judy McCreery, was.
· McCreery described the incident in his recently released book, Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream, saying one of the robbers held a pistol to his head.
