1 min read

A Stone Mountain man, Donnell Reed, has been sentenced to 45 years in connection to an armed robbery case involving two accomplices. DeKalb County Superior Court Judge LaTisha Dear Jackson delivered the sentence, with 35 years to be served in confinement and 10 years on probation. Reed’s twin brother, Darnell Reed, and Christin Scales were also found guilty in the case.

The incident occurred on October 6, 2021, when the victim met Scales online for a supposed exchange of money for sex. Upon arriving at the agreed location in Stone Mountain, he was met by Scales who delayed their encounter. Suddenly, the Reed brothers emerged armed with guns, demanding the victim’s car keys. As the victim attempted to escape, Darnell Reed shot him in the back.

Following the crime, the victim sought help, leading to the involvement of law enforcement. Surveillance footage captured Darnell Reed limping away from the scene. Despite conflicting stories, evidence led to the identification and prosecution of the perpetrators.

The case was handled by Senior Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Tarver, assisted by Assistant District Attorney Li Sapp, with support from District Attorney Investigator Jose Berrones and Victim Advocate Desiree Livingston. Former DeKalb County Police Department Detective Edwin Perkins spearheaded the initial investigation.
