Macon man sentenced to 13 years in prison for Barrington Hall armed robbery
MACON, Ga.-- A Macon man pleaded guilty on Thursday to armed robbery in a home invasion in north Macon’s Barrington Hall subdivision in January of 2017.
Quatrell Jamar Spearman, 21, was sentenced to 20 years. He will serve 13 of them in prison as part of a plea agreement.
Spearman was indicted for the robbery by a Bibb County Grand Jury along with 22-year-old Jasmine Byrd in September of 2017.
According to the Bibb County Sheriff's Office, Spearman and Byrd robbed a 57-year-old woman at gunpoint when she was getting out of her car in the garage of her Laurel Place home.
Her husband tried to come to her aid, but he was also held at gunpoint and both were forced to the ground, according to the Office of the District Attorney.
The woman's cash and debit card were taken. Investigators determined the debit card was used soon after the robbery to take out cash at Robins Financial Credit Union and purchase items at Wal-Mart and Kroger.
An investigation identified Spearman as one of the robbers. He turned himself in on Jan. 12, 2017.
The Office of the District Attorney confirms that a case is still pending against Byrd. Spearman's co-defendant is assumed to be innocent until she is proven guilty in a court of law.
“A home is a sacred space where every person has a right to feel safe. Mr. Spearman stole that from his victims and now he must pay the price," said Macon Judicial Circuit District Attorney David Cooke after the hearing.
