One of two defendants accused of robbing former Raiders, Broncos and Packers wide receiver Javon Walker in Las Vegas in 2008 has pleaded guilty.
The defendant, Arfat Fadel, pleaded guilty to one count of robbery, one count of second-degree kidnapping and one count of conspiracy to commit robbery. Walker was found unconscious and missing $3,000 in cash and about $100,000 worth of jewelry in the early morning of June 16, 2008, a block from the Las Vegas Strip.
The other defendant, Deshawn Thomas, will go on trial beginning on Tuesday. Walker is expected to testify.
The Raiders cut Walker this year and he is not currently under contract to any NFL team.
