WASHINGTON CO.—Three Greenville men will spend time in prison for burglarizing a Greenville home in 2017 and stealing gifts from under a man’s Christmas tree, Attorney General Jim Hood announced.
Billy Ray Walker, 37, Antonio Jones, 27, and Sakool Wilson, 27, were each sentenced Tuesday, Dec. 10, on one charge each of house burglary by Washington County Circuit Court Judge Ashley Hines.
Walker, who has two prior felony convictions for house burglary, was sentenced as a habitual offender to 23 years with five years suspended, 18 years to serve, and five years post release supervision. He was also sentenced to five years for conspiracy that will run concurrently with the house burglary conviction.
Jones also had two prior felony convictions for house burglary and was sentenced to 20 years to serve as a habitual offender.
Wilson was sentenced to 10 years to serve.
“Burglars are greedy criminals, but stealing from an innocent person during the holidays is even worse,” Attorney General Hood said.
Each defendant was also ordered to pay restitution to both the insurance company and the victim.
