A 14-year-old boy charged in connection with the stabbing death of Barnard College student Tessa Majors pleaded guilty to robbery charges Wednesday in family court.
The unnamed teenager pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery as a juvenile — a felony. He will be sentenced by a judge on June 15 to a limited security facility for six to 18 months.
“This resolution is in the best interest of the community and for a youth who has had no prior contact with the juvenile justice system and was not the main actor in the murder,” said James E. Johnson, the city’s corporation counsel, a division that prosecutes juvenile offenders, in a statement.
The juvenile was 13 years old when he and two other teenagers, Rashaun Weaver and Luchiano Lewis, were accused in the fatal stabbing of Majors during a mugging gone wrong last December in Morningside Park, steps from Barnard College.
