Waterbury Teenager Pleads Guilty To Robbery Charges

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Waterbury teen who terrorized victims in two armed robberies before leading a police chase in a stolen vehicle along with four others has pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery.

The Hartford Courant reports the 16-year-old boy entered the plea Thursday in Hartford Superior Court.

Fulton’s case was moved to the adult docket because of the seriousness of his crimes. He’s the third teen to admit to charges in the case.

Prosecutors say the teen, armed with a handgun, robbed a man of money and his cellphone last February in West Hartford. Approximately a half-hour later he robbed a woman in Farmington. Police pursued the teen and four others in a stolen sport utility vehicle before the chase concluded in West Hartford.

He faces up to 15 years behind bars.
