News


A 43-year-old Albany man was sentenced to 45 years in prison on various charges by a Houston County jury Friday.

According to a news release from the Houston County District Attorney's Office, Leroy Wilson III was convicted on attempted armed robbery, aggravated assault, entering an automobile and criminal damage to property charges.

The release states because of Wilson's previous felony convictions, he is to serve every day of the sentence.

Last May, Wilson allegedly attacked an employee of Smokes 2 Bar and Grill on Russell Parkway as she was opening the bar. The release states he tried to rob her at gun point, but she was able to get away. He then ran after her and held the gun to her head as they struggled. She was able to get away again, the release states, and Wilson then stole a tote bag from her car. As he was leaving, he turned and shot towards the woman, damaging her car.

 

Deputy Chief Assistant D.A. Daniel Bibler said in a statement he was pleased with the jury's verdict.

"They helped get a very bad man and dangerous man off the streets," he said. "Robbery and assault and gunpoint will not be tolerated in Houston County."

Detective Justin Clark of the Warner Robins Police Department was the lead investigator on the case.
