WATERLOO – A Waterloo man who was acquitted of murder charges in a February trial has pleaded guilty to an unrelated drug charge.
Shavondes Shavez Martin, 22, pleaded guilty to one count of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver on March 5 in Black Hawk County District Court. Sentencing will be at a later date.
The charges stems from a June 25, 2016, incident where officers stopped a Toyota Camry without a license plate that had an illegible paper tag in the area of Mobile Courtland streets. Martin was a front seat passenger, and police noticed the odor of marijuana and found a scale under his seat. Officers also found marijuana in his pants, court records state.

In February, jurors acquitted Martin and Armand Rollins of all charges in a drive-by shooting that killed 21-year-old Otavious Brown and injured Aundrey Roberts Jr. and Dewon Campbell Jr.
Doncorrion Spates, 17, was found guilty of first-degree murder. Authorities said Martin, Rollins and Spates were passengers in a vehicle that opened fire outside a Logan Avenue home on July 17, 2016. The driver, Jacques Williamson, 26, pleaded to lesser charges as part of an agreement to testify in the murder trial.
