A Navasota teen involved in a March 2021 armed robbery in Navasota has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.
The Grimes county District Attorney’s Office sent out a press release Monday afternoon that said, in part, that 19 year old Donquarius Jessie pleaded guilty to Aggravated Robbery and Aggravated Assault in the March 4th incident.
That took place on Sauls Street, when the victim met Jessie on Facebook marketplace, and agreed to sell him a dirt bike. After a brief show of the bike, Jessie brandished a gun, and told the victim to leave. Jessie fired off multiple rounds as the woman left in her pickup.
“Gun violence is taken very seriously by our office. Crimes, like those committed by Donquarius Jessie, will result in significant prison time. In Grimes County, this type of behavior will not be tolerated,” said Assistant District Attorney Courtney Cain.
At the time of the robbery, Jessie was out on bond for a December 2019 Aggravated Assault case, where a firearm was also used.
Jessie received 25 years for the robbery, and 20 year for the assault, which will run concurrently.
He is awaiting transfer in the Grimes County jail.
