A former Cal Poly running back pleaded no contest this week to conspiracy to commit grand theft.

Kristaan Ivory, 22, was one of five Cal Poly football players charged with conspiring and attempting to rob a fraternity. All but Cameron Akins, 20, have entered no contest pleas. Others charged included Cortland Fort, 20, Jake Brito, 21, and Dominique Love, 21.

Ivory pleaded no contest Wednesday in San Luis Obispo Superior Court to a single felony, but his sentencing was delayed 18 months. If he has abided by the conditions of his plea by that time, his sentence will be reduced to a misdemeanor at his July 12 hearing.

Under the terms of the plea, he agreed to testify at trial against Akins, who is accused of entering the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity with a pistol in August 2014. Prosecutors say the players were seeking money and drugs.
