Crime Georgia man sentenced to life in prison for Tasering own young children in vicious attack
Atlanta man gets life sentence for rape after victim recognizes him at train station six years later
An Atlanta man was sentenced to life in prison Friday after he was convicted of raping a woman – who reportedly recognized him during a chance sighting at a train station six years after the assault. Antonio White, 54, was waiting for a train at a MARTA subway station in Atlanta in October 2013 when he was spotted by his victim.“She was overcome by the moment and began to yell out that he was the man who had raped her six years earlier,” the Fulton County district attorney’s office said in a statement, adding it was the first time the woman had seen White since the attack.
A Georgia man who tased his own young children during a vicious attack on his ex-girlfriend and her great-grandmother will spend the rest of his life in prison, the Cobb County District Attorney's Office announced Thursday.
Antonio Maurice Gee was sentenced to life in prison plus 192 years for a December 2016 rampage at the Mableton home where the woman had been living with Gee's 1-year-old daughter and 5-month-old son.
Granddaughter gets 10 years for vigilante plot to kidnap grandfather accused of abuse
ROCK HILL, S.C. - The Rock Hill granddaughter who masterminded a vigilante plot against her grandfather over alleged abuse when she was a child was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Monday after pleading guilty. Kaylan Whiteside, 22, pleaded guilty to burglary and attempted murder stemming from the August 2014 incident where Wayne Whiteside was shot at his home outside Rock Hill.
"But for the grace of God and the Cobb County Police, this would have been a murder -- vicious, vile and savage," chief assistant district attorney John Melvin said in a statement. "I am thankful to the jury and to Judge Green for ensuring that this animal never sees the light of day as a free man again."
Officials say Gee – who had already been ordered from a prior case to have no contact with the woman and to stay away from the property – broke into her home and pummeled her great-grandmother. The woman was also stabbed and suffered a broken jaw, which required facial reconstruction surgery.
Later in the attack, Gee attempted to stab his daughter, and further cut his ex-girlfriend as she tried to defend the baby, officials said. Gee then knocked out the woman’s teeth and tased her and both children before stealing car keys, phones and credit cards that belonged to both adults living there.
A jury in the 2-day trial found Gee guilty of all 16 counts facing him, including charges of armed robbery and cruelty to children.
