ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A Houston man who along with five others tried to rob a man at his home on FM 2021 last July has accepted a 10-year prison sentence for the crime.

Dwayne Keith Adams, 24, accepted the sentence in District Judge Barry Bryan's court after a jury was selected for his trial, according to District Attorney Art Bauereiss.

Adams was one of six men who in July 2013 tried to break into a home on FM 2021. The homeowner came home and the men tried to force him to open his door. He refused to do so and one of them fired a round through a window before they all left the scene.

Angelina County sheriff's deputies arrested Adams, Brandon Hatter, Derrick Mojekwu and Bernard Palmer last August. They are still looking for Rashad Terrell and Jordy Wimbush.

Hatter has a plea hearing scheduled for Oct. 29. Mojekwu and Palmer do not yet have court dates set.
