Three men sentenced in federal court

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Information from U.S. Attorney Michael Moore-

One man was sentenced to five years probation, and two men were sentenced to federal prison for armed robbery by Judge Hugh Lawson in Valdosta federal court.

John Dewey Morris, 70, of Coolidge, was sentenced on Monday, October 28, 2013, for wire fraud, and ordered to pay $131,443.00 in total restitution to Progressive Insurance and Auto Owners Insurance.

Morris entered a guilty plea in July and admitted that he caused false and fraudulent insurance claims to be filed on a truck and wood chipper owned by his companies Beeline Wood Products, Inc. and Big Bend Timber Services.

Morris admitted that he knew the truck and wood chipper had not been stolen from a location in Thomas County, but instead at his request, had been cut up and sold for parts and scrap metal.

The case was investigated by the United States Secret Service along with the Thomas County Sheriff's Office, and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Robert D. McCullers.

In the armed robbery cases, Nyneson S. Jeudy, 21, and Jarrett J. Sutton, 22, both of Moultrie, were sentenced for armed robbery of the Dollar General, in Coolidge.

Jeudy was sentenced to serve one hundred forty-one (141) months (almost 12 years) and Sutton was sentenced to serve seventy 70 months, almost 6 years.

Jeudy and Mr. Sutton will each pay $2,300.00 restitution to the Dollar and a total of $47.00 to two employees of the store at the time of the robbery.

Jeudy admitted to carrying and pointing a firearm at employees when he entered the Dollar General on March 22, 2010.

Although Mr. Sutton admitted to participating in the robbery of the store and the employees, he did not possess a firearm at the time of the robbery. The store's videotape of the robbery showed Jeudy was armed with both a rifle and a handgun.

The case was investigated jointly by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the Thomas County Sheriff s Office and the Coolidge, Georgia Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Robert McCullers prosecuted the case for the Government.
