Two men, Shavaz Musgrove 26, and Andrew Washington Parker 31, were each sentenced to 25 years for a plethora of charges, including rape, kidnapping and robbery, when they appeared in the Supreme Court in Providenciales.


The charges, stemmed from a report made on Tuesday, 18th July 2017, by three complainants, which led to an investigation by the police.


Both were charged with three counts of rape, three counts of kidnapping, two counts of robbery, three counts of possession of an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear, and taking a motor vehicle without authority.


After the trial, the men were found guilty.


Musgrove, on the three counts of rape, was sentenced to 15 years in prison. On the three counts of kidnapping, he was sentenced to 10 years. On the two counts of robbery, he was given a 10-year sentence.


On the three counts of possession of an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear, he was sentenced to 15 years, and for taking a motor vehicle without authority, was sentenced to three years.


Parker was also found guilty on all charges. For three counts of rape, was sentenced to 15 years in prison. On charges of three counts of kidnapping, Parker was sentenced to 10 years in prison. On the two counts of robbery for which Parker was charged, was handed a 10-year sentence.


On the three counts of possession of an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear, was sentenced to 15 years. And for taking a motor vehicle without authority was given a three-year sentence.


The sentences of 10 years for kidnapping for both men will begin after the 15 years for rape ends, while the sentence of 15 years for possession of imitation firearm will run concurrently with the rape term of 15 years.


Meanwhile, the sentence of three years for taking a motor vehicle without authority will run concurrently with the kidnapping term of 10 years.
