Mohawk Beaver, 20, was charged with robbery by force and fear and first-degree burglary last November. Beaver pleaded guilty this week to the a reduced charge of second-degree robbery and burglary in exchange for the 10-year sentence with credit for time served. Beaver will be in court Jan. 5, 2015, for a judicial review.

Beaver was charged along with 28-year-old Jeremy L. Poafpybitty, of Bunch. Prosecutors allege the two men stole property from the victim and threatened to harm him if he resisted. An arrest warrant is still in place for Poafpybitty.
