— The son of North Carolina State basketball coach Sidney Lowe pleaded guilty Monday to a dozen charges connected to a March 2007 home invasion.

Sidney Lowe II, 23, pleaded guilty to six counts each of robbery with a dangerous weapon and second-degree kidnapping.

He also entered an Alford plea to the following charges: conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a weapon on school property, possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana and possession of a controlled substance. The first of the charges is linked to a shooting at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

In an Alford plea, a person can acknowledge the evidence in a case would lead to a conviction but still not admit guilt to a crime.

Lowe II is expected to be sentenced Tuesday.

Brian Martin, 20, will also be in court to face his own charges in connection with the shooting.
