Teen strikes plea deal in Clinton pizza delivery robbery
A Clinton, Iowa teen struck a deal in connection with the robbery of a pizza delivery driver last summer.
Darren Cross, 17, was charged with first-degree robbery after he was arrested July 25, 2012. Cross was charged in connection with a robbery reported a month earlier, during which a pizza delivery driver reported being hit in the head with a brick during a delivery in the 800 block of Fourth Avenue South.
Cross and another person allegedly approached the delivery driver from behind and hit him with a brick. The suspects then reportedly took the pizza, and used the brick to break out a window in the delivery vehicle.
Court records show the first-degree robbery charged was dismissed March 7, 2013. Instead, Cross pleaded guilty to being an accessory to a felony after the fact.
Cross was ordered to pay court fees and to serve 12 months of unsupervised probation. He was ordered to serve 224 days in jail, with credit for the 224 days he already served.
