Man Pleads Guilty To Lesser Charges, Aggravated Robbery Counts Dismissed

A man once facing first-degree aggravated robbery charges pleaded guilty in 1st District Court on Monday to lesser offenses.

Matthew Kay Archuleta, 27, pleaded guilty to four third-degree felonies: two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of purchase, transfer, possession or use of a firearm by a restricted person.


Six additional felonies and misdemeanors — including two counts of first-degree aggravated robbery — were dismissed as part of a plea agreement. Another unrelated case consisting of two misdemeanors was also dropped by prosecutors.


The charges stemmed from the alleged robbery of two people at a local Burger King on Oct. 13. Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
