Suspect who shot at sheriff's deputy re-sentenced on First Offender case

Joaquin Hogan got a second chance in January 2011 when a judge granted him first offender status on an attempted burglary charge.

If he had stayed out of trouble for two years, his record would have been wiped clean. Instead, investigators contend, Hogan didn’t make it 18 months before he held up businesses at gunpoint and shot at a sheriff’s deputy.

On Friday, Richmond County Superior Court Judge J. David Roper revoked Hogan’s first offender status and sentenced him to 10 years in prison.

Deputy Danny Haywood testified that he was on his way to the scene of an armed robbery with shots fired June 14 when he spotted a vehicle he believed the suspect was in. A chase ensued, which ended when the vehicle slowly entered a trailer park and stopped.

Haywood said two bullets narrowly missed him, even though he positioned his vehicle so it would be between him and the suspect when he got out.

Willie McNair and Mon­tra­vious McNair were arrested at the scene that night, but Hogan escaped. According to court records, he is suspected of committing two more robberies before he was arrested.

Hogan, 18, faces seven counts of armed robbery, one count of hijacking a motor vehicle, aggravated assault on a police officer and 16 weapon violations. Willie McNair, 24, faces five counts of armed robbery and five weapon violations. Montravious McNair, 17, faces one count of armed robbery.

He's screwed

... unless he goes in front of Overstreet; then he may get 'time served'. (Counting the time in the cop car that brought him in).

There is no justice. Obviously protecting civilized society is not an objective of the court system. You would think sometime that these judges have a personal relationship with the criminal element. They love to spend "quality" time with the same individuals.

Second chance

First let me offer an apology to Deputy Danny Haywood and say thank you for defending the public. The apology is for the fact you may run into Hogan even sooner than 10 years. The thank you is poor pay but all I have left after “Hope and Change” has run through the south like no one since Sherman. Ten years for attempted murder of an officer? Beard cutters get 15 in Ohio!

He SHOULD have gotten the ten

He SHOULD have gotten the ten years the first time. First offender status simply means it's the first time somebody CAUGHT him. There are no first offenders...only those who have never been caught before. This guy is a murderer who just happened to be a bad shot. He should have been doing the 10 already and NOW HE SHOULD GET 50 with no parole. This guys shot at a cop and should not see daylight again until his thingy won't stand up. That will take some of the pee and vinegar out of him.
