Nimmons sentenced to 15 Years

Tenth Circuit Solicitor Chrissy Adams announces that Devin Michael Nimmons pled guilty in Anderson General Sessions Court this week to three counts of accessory before the fact of a felony and one count of conspiracy to commit a felony. The Honorable Lawton McIntosh sentenced Nimmons to 15 years in prison on the accessory charges and 5 years suspended to 5 years’ probation on the conspiracy charge. The probation will follow the 15-year prison sentence.   Nimmons and Christopher Brown were both charged in the armed robbery, burglary and kidnapping of a 79-year-old retired veteran on Tidewater Lane in Anderson in December of 2010. According to the victim, one man entered the home posing as someone conducting a survey for the army. A second man entered the home carrying a weapon and wearing a ski mask. The two men then forced the victim into other areas of the house robbing him of cash and firearms.  A third defendant, Jacob Tubbs was later charged and convicted of accessory after the fact in connection with the crime. In a statement to law enforcement, Nimmons confessed to planning the crime but said that he did not actually participate. Nimmons also pled guilty to conspiracy in an unrelated case of an attempted armed robbery of the Starlight Cinemas on December 23, 2010.
