Ronald Cummings withdrew his not guilty plea in the drug trafficking cases against him Friday morning.
Prosecutors agreed to drop two of the five cases against Cummings, and he entered a guilty plea in the other three.
One of the cases carries a minimum sentence of 3 years in prison, with a 10-year max.
The other two have minimums of 10 years each with maximums of 30.
Ronald Cummings is slated to be sentencedÂ Sept. 24.
Cummings, the father of Haleigh Cummings who has been missing since February of 2009, was arrested on the drug trafficking charges with four others in a drug sting back in January.
Cummings’ ex-wife and babysitter the night the child vanished from their Satsuma home, Misty Croslin, was among those arrested in the sting.
Crystal Sheffield, the mother of Cummings’ daughter Haleigh was in the courtroom, joined by several family members.
A blogger and RadioNewz Blog claims Sheffield and her mother were seen outside the Putnam County courthouse this morning pointing at Lisa Croslin, the mother of Misty Croslin, who was standing near a bus stop at that time.
Sheffield and her other were also seen at the St. Johns County courtroom earlier this week where Misty Croslin enter her plea to a drug charge in that county.
Attorneys representing two of the others arrested along with Ronald Cummings in January spoke out this week, saying Cummings’ ex-wife Misty Croslin and her brother Tommy believe their cousin broke into the home in Satsuma and took Haleigh.
