Former Pasco High football player Kenney "Kenny" Steele gets 10 years in shooting

BROOKSVILLE — A 19-year-old Pasco man received 10 years in prison Thursday after prosecutors spared him a harsher sentence.

Kenneth "Kenny" Steele pleaded guilty to being a principle to a home invasion robbery with a firearm and principle to aggravated battery with a firearm that stemmed from a shooting during an alleged drug deal.

He initially was charged with attempted murder, but the prosecutor reduced the charges because of the victim's inconsistent statements.

Steele played football at Pasco High School and is the cousin of Alfredie Steele Jr., who is serving a life sentence for the 2003 slaying of Pasco sheriff's lieutenant Charles "Bo" Harrison.

    Everyone ends up with a favorite

    Or two or three or 10.

    Rest assured, however, no one who adores Tampa Bay, appreciates art or cherishes history can explore the Burgert Brothers Photographic Collection without storing at least one snapshot in the mental scrapbook.
