The Spalding County District Attorney’s Office had a trial calendar scheduled for June 12, 2017 in front of the Honorable Robert “Mack” Crawford. The calendar lasted two days. Over forty guilty pleas were entered in front of the court. Two of those notable pleas were:
Cornelius Henderson pled guilty to Voluntary Manslaughter and was sentenced to 20 years with the first 15 years to serve in a state penitentiary. The maximum sentence for Voluntary Manslaughter is 20 years to serve. Henderson pled guilty to shooting Demarkis Williams, after an altercation, in the city of Griffin on November 24, 2014.
Lashonda Miller-Webb pled guilty in a non-negotiated plea to Aggravated Assault and Aggravated Battery and was sentenced to 20 years with the first 7 years to serve in a state penitentiary. Miller-Webb pled guilty to slicing the victim, Tyrone Hughley’s, face with a hook knife in the city of Griffin on August 9, 2015. Mr. Hughley suffered a significant injury to his face and still wears a scar from the incident. Ms. Latisha Lashay Miller also suffered an injury to her arm in the attack.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the trial week ended on Tuesday. Benjamin Coker said of the week, “despite the early end to the week, Assistant District Attorney Canon Snow did a great job moving this calendar. As always we thank the tireless effort of law enforcement and the work that they do.”
