AUBURN, Alabama — The four former Auburn players accused of robbing the residents of a manufactured home in an Auburn trailer park have been indicted by a Lee County jury, according to online court filings.
Antonio Goodwin, Shaun Kitchens, Mike McNeil and Dakota Mosley are due to be arraigned in Circuit Court on May 26. A trial date has been tentatively set for June 16.
All four players were immediately dismissed from the football team by head coach Gene Chizik after their arrest on March 11.
Four other current football players who are not accused of any wrongdoing are listed as potential witnesses in the case. They are: running backs Mike Dyer and Anthony Morgan, receiver DeAngelo Benton and defensive back Neiko Thorpe.
The remaining witnesses appear to be either alleged victims of the robbery or Auburn police officers and detectives.
Police say the four defendants participated in a robbery of a trailer at the Conway Acres park off Wire Road.
They were stopped by Auburn police not long after at a traffic stop. Police recovered one handgun, an air gun and the stolen property.
The four former players were indicted on five counts of first-degree robbery, one count of first-degree burglary and one count of third-degree theft of property. Mosley also faces an additional misdemeanor count of conspiracy to hinder business.
The accused former players appeared in court last month for a preliminary hearing that was closed to the public because three of the four (all but McNeil) are eligible to apply for youthful offender status.
The defendants could apply for that status at their arraignment. Probation officers would review the application and a judge would rule after input or objections from prosecutors.
Youthful offender status, if granted, would seal case records and give defendants a chance to avoid jail time if certain conditions are met.
