John Wall pleads guilty to break-in

RALEIGH The 18-year-old top recruit from Word of God Christian Academy in Raleigh entered his plea on Wednesday.

He pleaded guilty to breaking and entering under what is called the "first offenders program." Breaking and entering pleas are allowed under the program only if the residence in question is vacant.

Wall was charged after he was seen coming out of an unoccupied home on Laurel Glen Drive on April 27. He was given a citation charging him with misdemeanor breaking and entering and was not arrested.

Two other teens are also charged in the incident. Police say there were no signs of forced entry at the home and nothing appeared to be missing.

He will perform 75 hours of community service, pay court costs and program fees.

After six months, if Wall complies with all requirements of the program and has a completely clean record, all charges will be dismissed and his record will be cleared.

Wall signed a national letter of intent to play college basketball at Kentucky last week.
