The wheel woman in a home invasion has been sentenced to 40 days in jail.
The woman, Shauna Carrick, entered guilty pleas to the charge of attempted aggravated robbery and was directed to serve 40 days of a three-year sentence and perform 24 hours public service work.
She was the driver of a car which delivered Robert F. Odom and her boyfriend, Justin K. Odom, to the scene of a home invasion in Centertown in which the Odoms used a toy gun in an attempt to rob the victim.
It was the toy gun, which was left at the scene of the crime, which helped investigators crack the case. Acting on a hunch after hearing the group had been seen hanging out at the nearby Dollar General, officers pulled the surveillance tape and saw the Odoms in the toy aisle where they purchased the gun. Further video evidence pulled from surveillance cameras at Kat’s Diner showed the group getting out of the car before the robbery.
For Carrick, the penalty was worse than what her boyfriend received as he got a four-year judicial diversion and had to serve no jail time. His uncle is serving 180 days of a six-year sentence.
