Greenwood, MS – In Greenwood, JaBrandon Green was sentenced to a total of 25 years with the Mississippi Department of Corrections, District Attorney Dewayne Richardson announced today.
Green had been indicted by a November 2013 Grand Jury for the charges of Armed Robbery, Aggravated Assault and Kidnapping. The case stemmed from Green and his co-defendants coming to Leflore Count and attempting to rob the clerk and patrons at Sanders Store. As Green and others fled from the robbery they became involved in a shoot-out with a citizen who was pulling up and attempting to stop the assailants. Luckily no one was injured but Green and others were captured and charged with their crimes.
In Circuit Court this week, JaBrandon Green pled guilty to Armed Robbery, Aggravated Assault and Kidnapping. Green was ordered to serve 25 years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections. After serving 20 years in prison, Green will be on probation for an additional 5 years.
Richardson added that, “the District Attorney’s office feels that justice has been served by the conviction and penalty imposed on this defendant. We hope that the victims of this case can rest a little easier knowing that this assailant is behind bars. All defendants sentenced to the Penitentiary for Armed Robbery are required by law to serve 100% of their sentence without any early release or parole.”
