A co-defendant in a 2011 case that included six counts of burglary pled guilty to his crimes last week and received a 30-year sentence with 10 years to serve in prison.

Ladavian Martrell Ross was in Jones County Superior Court July 17 and pled guilty to four of the burglaries as part of a plea negotiation with the state. All the burglaries for which he was charged were residential burglaries.

Ross received 10 years each for four counts of first-degree burglary. Two of the counts are to run concurrently and others consecutively for a total of 30 years. After service of the first 10 years, the remainder of the sentence is to be served on probation.

The defendant was also ordered to pay more than $50,000 in restitution to his victims. He had been out on bond but was arrested July 11 for failure to appear in court. The 2011 arrest was not Ross’ first. He was convicted of burglary in 2005 and served a five-year sentence.

Ross’ co-defendant, Jarvis Tarquez Gibson, pled guilty April 22, 2013, and received a total sentence of 30 years with seven years to serve in confinement.
