A man connected with the April robbery of a Nikiski bar has pleaded guilty to being involved with the crime.
Joshua Pepper, 27, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery in the second degree, a class C felony, on Oct. 3 after nearly five months of court proceedings.
By pleading guilty to conspiracy, five additional charges against Pepper were dismissed. The charges were robbery in the first degree and four counts of assault in the third degree.
The plea agreement calls for five years of jail time, with two suspended, followed by a four-year probation period.
