A Duluth teen has pleaded guilty to her role in the brutal attack of a UMD student on the Lakewalk in May.

The incident happened when 21 year old Walfrid "Dash" Johnson was out for an evening with his friends and decided to walk home during the early morning hours.

On his way home on the Lakewalk a group of teens beat him up.

Monday, 17 year old Julie Ann Isham pleaded guilty to the adult criminal charge of first degree aggravated robbery in the crime.

16 year old Markus Lee St. Clair, and 16 year old Myron Ellis Clark were also charged in the beating.

St. Clair pleaded guilty last month to first degree assault for punching Johnson in the head and knocking him unconscious.

Clark is facing an attempted murder charge.

Isham also pleaded guilty to third degree criminal sexual conduct for another incident.

She will be sentenced in September.
