One of the men involved in two terrifying home invasions of elderly victims in 2015 was sentenced to seven years in prison after pleading guilty Monday.
Wesley Lamar Henning, 22, pleaded guilty to strong arm robbery, burglary and a weapons charge, said Jenny Desch, 16th Circuit assistant solicitor.
Henning was one of three suspects charged in the July 2015 home invasion near Clover.
The victim, 84, was robbed of $1,000 cash, hundreds of dollars in gift cards and weapons. The marauders put a gun in the victim’s mouth as a threat for the man to open a home safe.
Another victim was targeted in a separate incident.
Jordan Brooks, 19, pleaded guilty last year to his involvement in one of the crimes and was sentenced to eight years in prison.
Kyler Brakefield, 20, of Clover, who also had similar convictions in Cherokee County in North Carolina was sentenced to 18 years in prison in January for the crimes.
Brakefield told police and prosecutors his mother, Lawana Hickel, gave him information about the victims, Desch said. Hickel pleaded guilty in January and was sentenced to eight years in prison, court records show.
