B.R. Man Gets 35 Years In Crime Spree
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A state judge has ordered a Baton Rouge man to spend 35 years in prison for his role in a violent crime spree in 2010 that included the shooting injury of a good Samaritan trying to help a pregnant woman who was being robbed at gunpoint near LSU.
On Monday, Judge Don Johnson sentenced Jonathan Brit Murray to 30 years in prison on three counts of armed robbery and tacked on five more years for engaging in a pattern of criminal street-gang activity.
The three armed robberies that Murray pleaded guilty to happened in 2010 on Oct. 23, Nov. 19 and Nov. 21.
The Advocate reports Johnson also sentenced one of Murray’s co-defendants, Leslie Harris, to 30 years in prison on 10 counts of armed robbery.
