Man pleads guilty of carjacking Holy Cross students


A man has pleaded guilty to robbing and carjacking two Holy Cross students.

Prosecutors say Hakeen Hogan, who's trial was scheduled to begin Friday, entered his plea in a Saint Joseph County courtroom on Wednesday.

In 2009, Hogan was accused of carjacking the students, then having them withdraw money from ATMs. Those charges were dismissed after the victims couldn't identify Hogan. Charges were re-filed in the case earlier this year after investigators say they discovered new evidence.

Hogan also pleaded guilty to misdemeanor Battery in a separate incident earlier this year. Police say they were called in July after a woman says Hogan hit her in the head and slammed her head against the floor.

Hogan is scheduled to be sentenced on December 5.
