Second Defendant in Armed Robbery Trial Pleads Guilty

One of the two defendants in this week’s armed robbery trial in Coweta Superior Court opted to plead guilty to all counts Thursday morning after new evidence was presented by the prosecution.
Deandrez Sherod White chose to plead guilty to counts of armed robbery, aggravated assault on a peace officer and kidnapping during two armed robberies – one in Newnan and one in Hogansville. After the prosecution, led by assistant district attorneys Kevin McMurry and Trey Reeves with the Coweta County District Attorney’s Office, presented new evidence of a phone call from the Coweta County Jail between White and some family members, during which White attempted to procure a witness from testifying, White chose to plead guilty.
