Koren Robinson enters a plea bargain

Packers WR Koren Robinson, acquired off of waivers from the Minnesota Vikings, has entered a special plea bargain, called an Alford plea bargain, in his case involving a high-speed chase.  In this plea, he has admitted that there is enough evidence to convict him, but still does not officially admit guilt.  In exchange Robinson’s minor charges of reckless driving, driving without a license, and 5 others were dropped.

 Over the summer, Robinson was racing to meet a curfew at the Packers training camp, and allegedly exceeded speeds of 100 mph with police chasing him.  Robinson claims he didn’t know he was being chased, and was simply trying to make curfew.  Sentencing is currently scheduled for Feb. 20, but that is a tentative date.
