  • Follow Crime & courts

A man who held up gas stations in Richmond and Columbia counties pleaded guilty Monday to armed robbery and weapon charges.

Khatrell Harris, 22, pleaded guilty in Richmond County Superior Court to the Feb. 7 holdup at a BP station on Gordon Highway and a Feb. 9 robbery at Fuel Ex­press on Jimmie Dyess Parkway.

At the time of the crimes, Harris was on probation for burglary and theft convictions.

Judge Michael N. Annis sentenced Harris to 17 years in prison, followed by 13 years on probation. The judge accepted a plea deal that dismissed other charges, including aggravated assault and another armed robbery charge.

Why on earth would you give a plea bargain to an obviously violent felon? This judge and others like him are the reason we have rampant crime. He was already on probation when he committed at least four robberies and one wonders about how many other crimes he did that weren't discovered. Weak judges and prosecutors are making a mockery of our courts. Put these thugs in prison and throw away the key.

Part of me wonders if he

Part of me wonders if he would have been out of jail quicker had he murdered someone. Seems like murder gets around 8 on average no?

to find out more. Look at his mug shot, incarceration history. It says his Max. Possible Release Date is 10/28/30, which appears to be the 17 years. But, it states that, "The Actual Release Date may occur prior to the Max Possible Release Date due to the offender receiving clemency by the State Board of Pardons and Paroles."

Use the site to look others. Let's hold the State Board of Pardons and Parole's feet to the fire.
