2 women sentenced to 7 years in prison for robbery

Two women involved in a robbery in which the victim was shot in the head and left in the middle of an Augusta street pleaded guilty Thursday.

Michelle R. Spivey, 21, and Lakisha M. Williams, 25, pleaded guilty in Richmond County Superior Court to a single, reduced charge of robbery.

Judge Carl C. Brown Jr. sentenced each to seven years in prison followed by three years’ probation.

Spivey and Williams were drinking heavily with Barkeem Barclay on July 21 at a motel before the women robbed him, said Assistant District Attorney Falin Syms. They talked Barclay into changing locations and, along the 2400 block of Cunningham Road, two men joined in the plot.

Barclay was shot, robbed of $60 and left in the street.

The sheriff’s investigation into the identity and prosecution of the men is ongoing, Syms said.

Neither Spivey nor Williams, who gave birth in jail while awaiting trial, had criminal records.
