Greenville, MS – In Greenville, Malik Stewart pled guilty to three charges of Armed Robbery in Washington County Circuit Court, District Attorney Dewayne Richardson announced today. Stewart was scheduled for trial earlier this month but he opted to plead guilty and not exercise his right to a trial.
Malik Stewart, 18 yoa, was indicted by the July 2016 Grand Jury for three different Armed Robbery charges. These charges stemmed from the Greenville Police Department arresting him on May 16, 2016, for robbing three different individuals here in Greenville, MS. The first victim was robbed on April 18 at her home on Airdale Drive. The second victim was robbed a month later on May 13 while walking down Kentucky Street. Stewart was arrested shortly after the third Armed Robbery which occurred on May 16, 2016 on Adams Street. Officers were able to capture and detain Stewart moments after the third incident. Stewart later admitted to the Greenville Police Department his involvement in all three Armed Robberies.
Stewart pled guilty to all three of his indictments. He was sentenced to a total of 25 years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections. Malik Stewart will serve the first 20 years of his sentence in prison and the last five years on probation.
Richardson added that, “all defendants sentenced to the Penitentiary for Armed Robbery are required by law to serve everyday of their sentence without any early release or parole.”
