Marquita Lavale Alford, of 129 Luther St., Cedartown, issued a plea of guilty on six charges in three different cases before Superior Court Judge Richard Sutton.
Two other charges were dropped in exchange for a guilty plea.
The charges she pleaded guilty to are robbery by intimidation, theft by taking, theft by receiving, gambling, criminal trespass and obstruction. The latter three charges are misdemeanors.
The robbery by intimidation and theft by taking charges stem from an Aug. 24, 2011, incident where she and Reginald LeJames Davis, also of Cedartown, carjacked and robbed a man.
Davis was convicted of armed robbery, kidnapping, hijacking a motor vehicle and theft by taking in the case. Prosecutors said in court Tuesday that Alford’s testimony at trial played a large role in getting a conviction.
He was sentenced to life with no parole.
According to prosecutors, Alford was used as “bait” to get the victim to stop and she also drove the car after it was stolen.
Sutton went, for the most part, along with the prosecutor’s recommendation in sentencing where she spends most of her sentence on probation.
The judge sentenced Alford to two years incarceration, with the one year and 12 days that she’s been in jail applying toward that sentence, and 20 years probation for the most serious charge relating to the carjacking. She will also serve 10 years probation for the theft by taking charge with that to be served at the same time as the other probation. She also has $1,000 in fines with those charges.
Alford must also serve 10 years probation, to be served at the same time as the others, for the theft by receiving charge and must pay a $500 fine. She was sentenced to 12 months probation for the misdemeanor charges with no fine.
Sutton told Alford she would be eligible to serve the remainder of her probation unsupervised if she served her first 10 years on probation without any serious offenses.
