Carjacker sentenced to more than 12 years

October 06, 2007|By Matthew Dolan

A federal judge sentenced 19-year-old Calvin Williams this week to more than a dozen years in prison for his role in two Northwest Baltimore carjackings.

According to a statement of facts filed in court papers, Williams, Antonio T. Freeman, 20, and Marcus Harrison, 19, all of Baltimore approached a man getting into his 1998 Pontiac Grand Am in the 3400 block of Berwyn Ave. on Nov. 29. Freeman displayed a Smith & Wesson revolver and ordered the man to lie on the ground. The defendants took his keys and drove off.

The next day, Williams approached a man getting into his 2002 Ford Explorer at a gas station in the 3900 block of Liberty Heights Ave., prosecutors said. Freeman brandished the revolver and told the man, "Don't do anything stupid. Give me the keys," witnesses told police. He took the man's keys and drove away.

The loaded revolver used in both carjackings was recovered when officers searched Harrison's residence. Freeman was arrested immediately before the search after he tried to evade officers.

Before his sentencing late Thursday, Williams pleaded guilty to carjacking and using a firearm in connection with a crime of violence.

On Sept. 27, Freeman was sentenced to 13 years in prison and Harrison to 11 years after both pleaded guilty to the same charges.
