One of three young men charged in connection with the 2010 robbery and shooting death of a Savannah College of Art and Design student pled guilty to his role in the homicide Thursday.

John Andrew Adams, 22, pleaded guilty to five counts of hindering the apprehension of a criminal.

According to prosecutors, Adams drove co-defendants Alex Cowart, 24, and Daniel Izzo, 19, away from Sean Giroir's Barnard Street home after Cowart and Izzo robbed and then shot him.

Adams then drove Cowart and Izzo to a hotel near Atlanta where they were arrested the following morning, prosecutors said.

Cowart was found guilty of felony murder and other charges.

Izzo pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter and armed robbery.

Adams agreed to plead guilty to the charges in an arranged plea with Assistant District Attorney Ann Elmore.

Chatham County Superior Court Judge Timothy Walmsley sentenced Adams to 25 years, with 10 to serve in prison.
