Eddie Devine, 17, pleaded guilty to two counts of armed carjacking, three counts of armed robbery, three counts of kidnapping and two counts of sexual battery.
The charges stem from incidents reported on April 28, 2013, March 1, 2014 and April 19, 2014.
In the last case, Devine and Remy Harvey, who was 13 years old at the time, are accused of forcing a woman into her car outside a Jackson apartment complex and then driving around while one of the teens raped and assaulted her with an icepick, police said. The woman was able to escape when Devine and Harvey stopped for gas, authorities said.
“The daughter I got back after that incident is not the same girl that I brought into the world. She is not. She is afraid,” said the father of one of the victims.
While free on bond on the Jackson charges, Devine was arrested by Flowood police on Dec. 27, 2014, in connection with a carjacking outside Bed, Bath & Beyond. Devine, who police said was armed with a knife, is accused of threatening to kill the woman before stealing her SUV.
Devine was sentenced in Hinds County to 30 years for armed carjacking, 30 years for sexual battery, 30 years for armed robbery (with 15 suspended) and 30 years for kidnapping. The day-for-day sentences will run concurrently, Judge Bill Gowan said. Rest of article.
Kingfish note: Now Mr. Devine gets to face the Rankin County criminal justice system. Good job, Judge Gowan.
