Judge denies youth status to Auburn ex-player

AUBURN, AL (AP) - A judge declined to grant youthful offender status to former Auburn former football player Shaun Kitchens, one of four former Auburn players charged with armed robbery in March.
Two others, Dakota Mosley and Antonio Goodwin, are also seeking youthful offender treatment. There was was no new information on whether their request was rejected on Monday.

A fourth player, Mike McNeil, is too old to apply for the treatment, but his attorney has questioned the constitutionality of the state statute.
Lee County Circuit Court Judge Christopher J. Hughes said he considered input from the defense, Kitchens' family, a probation officer, prosecutors and the alleged victims.

The four ex-players were indicted in May on charges of first degree robbery, first degree burglary and third degree theft of property.
