19-year-old charged in Grand Forks robberies would get 4 years in plea deal
A teenager charged in a string of convenience store robberies in Grand Forks has reached a plea deal that would put him behind bars for four years.
As part of the deal, 19-year-old Gypsy Watts would plead guilty to three counts of robbery, and in exchange, one robbery charge and a terrorizing charge would be dropped.
Watts, who previously pleaded not guilty, has a change-of-plea hearing set for today in state District Court.
