An Augusta teen charged with multiple counts of burglary and robbery pleaded guilty Monday, bypassing a jury trial set to begin in Richmond County Superior Court.
Marvin N. Major, 18, was sentenced to 10 years in prison followed by 10 years of probation in a plea deal accepted by Judge James G. Blanchard Jr.
Major was one of the suspects targeted as a result of 2011’s Operation Smoke Screen.
Major, according to the indictment, tried to sell stolen items including a laptop, a video game system and a .38-caliber handgun. Major was also accused of committing several burglaries in September and October 2011 and robbing a couple on Oct. 4, 2011.
