7.9.12: Defendants in Recorded St. Patrick's Day Incident Plead Guilty
July 9, 2012 -- All of the defendants charged in the St. Patrick's Day incident that was captured on video pled guilty today. Shatia Baldwin and Aaron Parsons both pled guilty to robbery, while Deangelo Carter and Shayona Davis pled guilty to second-degree assault.
Parsons, 20, received a sentence of three years in prison, with all but one year suspended, and three years of probation for his involvement in the March 18, 2012, attack on a man in the 100 block of North Calvert Street. Carter, 19, and Davis, 20, were each sentenced to one year in prison, with all but time served suspended, and three years of probation.
Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Wanda K. Heard is scheduled to sentence Baldwin, 21, on December 7, 2012.
"While I am limited in what I can say about this incident because one of the cases remains open, it is a testament to the excellent work of the Baltimore City Police and Sheriff's Departments, as well as the public, that the individuals responsible for this assault on an innocent civilian were identified and brought to justice in such an expeditious manner. I would like to express my gratitude to all involved for the timely and just outcomes achieved thus far," State's Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein said.
