LIMA — An Indianapolis teenager in court for sentencing Wednesday in the armed robbery earlier this year of a Lima Walgreens pharmacy instead asked for permission to withdraw his earlier plea of guilty.
Treyvon Manning, 19, is one of four young Indianapolis residents charged with the April 26 early-morning robbery of the Walgreens store at the intersection of Allentown and Cable roads. All four have been charged with aggravated robbery with firearm specifications, felonies of the first degree. One of the teens has already been sentenced for his role in the robbery.
Judge David Cheney of Allen County Common Pleas Court opened Wednesday’s hearing with the announcement that he had received a letter from Manning earlier in the day in which the defendant asked to withdraw his previously entered guilty plea. Upon questioning by the judge, Manning said his request was based on new evidence that has been discovered in a case against him in Shelby County.
