Burglar Admits Guilt In Forays

A man charged in connection to a burglary spree that plagued Casper last year has pleaded guilty to six charges in District Court Friday. Anthony BlackBonnet, 19, appeared before District Judge Catherine Wilking for an outward plea agreement.

With Public Defender Tim Cotton at his side, BlackBonnet pleaded guilty to counts 1, 2, 5, 6, 8 and 13, three counts of burglary, two counts of aggravated burglary, and one count of attempted robbery.

Assistant District Attorney Mike Schafer presented the state’s case for each count, including count 13, where BlackBonnet entered the home of man in a wheelchair and forcibly took a fanny pack containing money and prescription drugs.

As with all counts, DA Schafer outlined the evidence and testimony of witnesses and defendants that tied BlackBonnet to the crimes. Judge Wilking found there was sufficient cause to hear a change of plea on each count.

Defender Cotton told the court that BlackBonnet wanted to accept responsibility for his crimes.

Judge Wilking accepted the guilty plea for six the charges and dismissed seven charges. According to the plea agreement, there is a 15 year cap on the prison sentence BlackBonnet could receive. A sentencing hearing will be scheduled in the future.
