MADISON, Wis. — The man charged in a Sun Prairie shooting that killed a 29-year-old man earlier this year could face up to 18 years in prison under a plea deal.

According to online court records, 34-year-old Anthony Young pleaded guilty on Monday to a charge of second-degree reckless homicide in the case.

Judges aren’t required to accept plea deals but often follow their terms, meaning Young could be sentenced based on the state’s maximum penalty for second-degree reckless homicide.

As part of the plea deal, the state dropped three other charges, including felony bail jumping, possession of narcotic drugs, and felon in possession of a firearm.

Young was arrested and charged earlier this year for his involvement in a shooting that killed 29-year-old Shanton S. Robinson. On Feb. 23, Robinson was dropped off at a Madison clinic with a life-threatening gunshot wound to the chest that ultimately killed him.

Young’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for Dec. 14 at 8:30 a.m.
