PERRY -- A Warner Robins man was sentenced Wednesday to 20 years in prison for four burglaries, multiple vehicle break-ins, an arson, aggravated assault and criminal damage to property.
Brett Donald Justice, 21, also was sentenced to 10 years probation upon release from prison by Houston County Superior Court Judge George F. Nunn, according to a Houston County District Attorneys Office news release.
The crimes were committed during a two-month period during the summer of 2011 that included the burglaries of Northside High School and Kohls in Warner Robins.
Justice also set a truck ablaze with gasoline. In addition, he pointed a revolver at the owner of a van he surprised when breaking into the vehicle in the Quail Run subdivision.
Justice earned every day of this sentence, prosecutor Jacob W. Poole said in the news release. Crime sprees like the one (Justice) orchestrated are terrifying and unacceptable.
We are thankful to the law enforcement officers from several local agencies who worked diligently to solve these crimes and bring Brett Justice to justice.
Carolyn Hall, an assistant public defender, and Russell Walker, a Perry attorney, the attorneys who represented Justice, could not be reached for comment.
