Posted: Updated:

Four people entered guilty Pleas in a 2012 Seminole County Home Invasion Case, and will soon begin serving lengthy prison sentences.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation released a statement Monday detailing the crime, and the sentences for Lewarrentay Jones, Brandon Greene, Shannon Nicole Cobb, and Lauren Joiner.


On Thursday, January 9, 2014, Lewarrentay Devorn Jones, 26, Donalsonville, Georgia, pled guilty to two counts of Aggravated Assault and one count of Burglary in Seminole County Georgia for his part in a home invasion/armed robbery incident occurring in November of 2012.

The facts of the case revealed that Jones, along with co-defendant Brandon Greene, entered the Donalsonville residence of Robert McCrary and shot McCray and a visitor, Adrian Greenlee, with the intent to rob Greenlee at gun point.

During the incident, Jones shot Greenlee and McCray, seriously injuring both. During the attempted robbery Jones and Greene were dropped off and subsequently picked up by co-defendants Shannon Nicole Cobb, 26, of Donalsonville, and Lauren Joiner, 27, of Iron City.

The investigation revealed that joiner provided the firearm used in the incident which was later discarded by Cobb.

As part of negotiated plea deals, the defendants were sentenced to the following by Pataula Superior Court Judge Ronnie Joe Lane:

LEWARRENTAY JONES – 40 years, 20 to serve in the state penitentiary

BRANDON GREENE – 20 years, 10 to serve in the state penitentiary

SHANNON NICOLE COBB – 20 years, 5 to serve in the state penitentiary

LAUREN JOINER – 20 years, 6 months confinement


The incident was investigated by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) and the Donalsonville Police Department. The case was prosecuted by the Pataula Judicial Circuit District Attorney's office.
