Women accused of armed holdup benefit from uncooperative victim

A prosecutor and defense attorneys agreed to a plea negotiation Friday that gave three women accused of an armed holdup probation instead of the mandatory minimum 10-year prison term for armed robbery.

Assistant District Attorney Grant Usry explained to the judge that Tyrone Thompson recanted telling investigators that Kadijah S. Timley, 19, Elizabeth D. Goodman, 23, and Jessica M. McNair, 23 robbed him at a local hotel on March 10 and rebuffed all efforts since by the prosecution to contact him.

Judge Michael N. Annis sentenced each woman to 15 years on probation for robbery and a weapon violation. He granted First Offender status to McNair.
