9-year-old Andre Johnson, 20-year-old DeAngelo Hawkins, and 20-year-old Michael Jackson were accused of breaking into a home in the 400 block of B Street in Charles City in July. Someone hiding in a closet called 911 and reported armed intruders in their home.

Hawkins and Jackson both entered guilty pleas to 2nd degree burglary. Jackson received five years of probation and Hawkins’ sentencing is scheduled for January 8, 2018.
