A Bloomfield Hills High School basketball star received three years probation today in connection with a with a home invasion case, his lawyer said.
Khalil Gracey, 17, was sentenced under Michigan’s Holmes Youthful Trainee Act, which means he has no criminal record if he successfully completes probation, his attorney Elbert Hatchett said.
“He’ll be allowed to go on to college,” Hatchett said. “And basically go on with his future.”
Hatchett said Gracey plans to attend college on a basketball scholarship and is still the the process of determining where he’ll go.
Last month, Gracey pleaded guilty to home invasion, a 15-year felony, and admitted he drove a friend to break into a house in the 500 block of Cambridge Way in Bloomfield Township, then drove him away. It was one of two burglaries committed in February and March. Two other teens also were charged.
“Holmes Youthful Trainee Act was specifically designed for cases like this,” Hatchett said. “Young men who have no previous history.”
