Probation Sentence Given by Jury on Aggravated Robbery Case

Thursday, April 23, 2007 – Austin Chronicle

A Williamson County jury today sentenced eighteen-year-old Thomas Little to ten years probation for his role in an aggravated robbery of a What-a-Burger, which occurred on August 5, 2005.  After deliberating for less than four hours, the jury unanimously agreed to the probationary sentence, despite the fact that the Williamson County District Attorney had sought a twenty-five-year penitentiary sentence for Mr. Little.

“We are most gratified that the jury was unmoved by the emotional arguments of the prosecutors in this matter,” said Bob Phillips, Mr. Little’s attorney.  “Tom made a horrible mistake by agreeing to be the driver in this botched aggravated robbery, but, thankfully, no one was hurt, and the jury realized that even in Williamson County, justice should be tempered with mercy.”

Little was facing a potential life sentence in the first degree felony charge.
