Third ex-Concord player pleads guilty to conspiracy

Posted:
PRINCETON (WVVA) - A third former Concord University football player has pleaded guilty to conspiracy in connection with an alleged drug deal gone bad last year.

Maricco Sanders entered the plea in Mercer County Circuit Court Tuesday. The plea carries a possible sentence of 1-5 years behind bars.

Last month, Russell Bailey and Riyahd Richardson -- also former football players -- pleaded guilty to the same charge. The three were previously charged with malicious wounding and petit larceny as well, after an apparent drug deal gone bad near the Athens campus last November.

A pre-sentencing hearing for Sanders has been scheduled for July 22.
