Prolific Teen Burglar Pleads Guilty On 14 Charges

The teenage burglar arrested for breaking into Mayor Mike McGinn’s chief of staff’s home last February pleaded guilty on 14 different charges Wednesday.

According to the King County Prosecutor’s office, the 17-year-old boy pleaded guilty to seven residential burglaries, six counts of auto theft, and one count of 2nd degree escape.

After Mercer Island police picked the teen up for a burglary in March, he told police he and his accomplices had stashed several cars around Seattle, so they could be used in other burglaries, or “whenever the need arose.”

Because the boy is still a minor, he’s only facing a maximum of 14 months in juvenile detention.

The teen is scheduled to be sentenced February 9th.

We’ll have more details on the cases later today.
