Prison sentence imposed for Augusta teen who helped mug younger child for shoes

One of two teens accused of mugging an 11-year-old for his shoes was sentenced to two years in prison Wednesday.

Terrance A. McCray, 17, pleaded guilty in Richmond County Superior Court to the reduced charge of robbery for his role in the June 19, 2016, armed holdup. Keshaun Harvey, who has pleaded not guilty in the same case, was the one allegedly holding a gun on the little boy.

“This is an ultimate case of bullying,” Judge J. Wade Padgett said. While McCray did stop smoking marijuana, got a job and returned to high school, he “stepped over a line I’m not willing to ignore,” Padgett said in denying defense attorney Dan Franck’s request to spare McCray from any time in prison.

After McCray completes the incarceration, he will serve an additional 10 years on probation. The judge granted him First Offender status.
