Lionel Tate

After pleading guilty this morning to the armed robbery of a pizza delivery man, Lionel Tate could get up to 30-years in prison.

The 19-year-old appeared in a Fort Lauderdale court this morning where he admitted he violated probation by possessing a gun during the robbery last may.

By entering this plea, Tate faces 10 to 30 years in prison instead of a life sentence.

Ellis Rubin, his attorney, said the evidence was overwhelming and his client got the best deal he could get.

You might recall: Tate was convicted of killing 6-year-old Tiffany Eunic when he was just 12.

His next court dates is April 3 for sentencing in this latest case.
