Man, woman sentenced for South Cobb robbery in 2020


For their roles in a March 2020 armed robbery in South Cobb, Jada Hill, and Devante Porter have been sentenced to prison. 

The Cobb District Attorney’s Office announced that a Cobb County jury found Hill, 20, of Stone Mountain guilty of one count of armed robbery, one count of hijacking a motor vehicle, and one count of aggravated assault. Hill was sentenced to 10 years in prison and 10 years probation by Superior Court Judge Henry Thompson.

According to her March 2020 arrest warrant, Hill conspired with two men to commit an armed robbery. One of the gunmen, Devante Porter, pleaded guilty to armed robbery, hijacking a motor vehicle, aggravated assault, and possessing a firearm prior to trial. 

Porter was sentenced to 5 years in prison, to be followed by 10 years probation. On March 13, 2020, Cobb police received a call shortly after 8 p.m. from a male victim who said he had just been robbed at gunpoint at Kingsley Village Apartments on Riverside Parkway in South Cobb. 

The victim told prosecutors that he had arrived to pick up Hill for a date. Security footage from the apartment complex showed two males in a silver sedan that pulled up to the victim’s car. 

According to prosecutors, the suspects exited with guns drawn, forcing the victim out of his own car. Hill had told the two males about her planned meeting and that the victim had money. After Hill delayed the victim, the two males robbed him of $8 at gunpoint and then stole his car, a 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage.

During her trial, prosecutors said Hill’s phone records showed that she set up the date with the victim and made sure he was unarmed and had cash on hand.

The third co-defendant in the robbery has never been identified.
