Man Gets 132 Years For His Role In Home Invasion Where Three Women Were Raped, Three Men Hurt
Giorgio Lakeith Jennings will spend the rest of his life behind bars for his role in a 2011 home invasion in which three women were raped, two men were shot and a third man was assaulted.
A Tennessee man has been sentenced to more than a century behind bars for his role in a violent home invasion involving the assault of six people.
Giorgio Lakeith Jennings, 33, was sentenced to 132 years of prison, according to a Saturday press release from the Shelby County District Attorney’s Office. The terms of the sentence required that 126 of those years must be spent without the possibility of parole.
The North Memphis man was convicted on 22 felony counts last November for a January 2011 home invasion in the Berclair area of Memphis, according to a November press release from the district attorney's office.
Jennings, along with two men who remain unidentified, had guns and broke into a home where at six people were present. All six were brutally attacked by Jennings and his accomplices.
“Three women, ages 21 to 25, were sexually assaulted; two male victims, ages 21 and 26, were shot in their right hands,” the district attorney’s office details, nothing that “a 25-year-old man was pistol whipped in the attack.”
During the robbery, Jennings and his companions stole two video game systems, knives, a bow, a spear and medieval-type swords.
Jennings was identified as a suspect by DNA and through some of the stolen property found in his bedroom. An arrest warrant was issued for him in 2014 and he was arrested in 2017 while jailed in St. Louis for an unrelated crime.
Jennings additionally has a sexual assault case pending in Las Vegas, officials note.
He was convicted of six counts of aggravated rape, five counts of aggravated robbery, three counts of aggravated assault, three counts of facilitation aggravated assault, three counts of aggravated kidnapping, one count of aggravated burglary and one count of employment of a firearm in the commission of a dangerous felony.
In the unlikely event that he gets out of prison, Jennings will be put on the Violent Sex Offender Registry and Community Supervision for the remainder of his life.
The two other men involved in have not been identified but “John Doe warrants” have been issued based upon their DNA profiles, WMC-TV reports.
