Young, 21, Sentenced To Life For Yamacraw Armed Robbery

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA -

The Office of Eastern Judicial Circuit/Chatham County District Attorney announces that a jury has found Daqwan Issac Young, (age 21) of Savannah, guilty of armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony for his involvement in the armed robbery of Xavier McGiver.

This report is published with information provided by the DIstrict Attorney's Office.

Young was sentenced yesterday to Life in Prison plus 5 years of Probation. The second man charged in the crime, Quayshaun Floyd (age 21), entered into an open ended plea Monday and received 15 years in prison with 11 to serve without parole by Superior Court Judge Michael Karpf for his involvement.


Assistant District Attorney Jerry Rothschild explained to the jury that on the evening of April 8, 2011, the victim was at the residence of a female friend of Quayshaun Floyd's in Yamacraw Village when he was beaten and robbed by a man with a shotgun; who he later identified as Young. He was robbed of his shoes, hat, phone, pants and wallet contents of $65 and debit card.

Floyd, who came into the residence and participated in the robbery, was later arrested by SCMPD wearing the hat and shoes. Because of prior convictions, including armed robbery and being on felony probation for theft by receiving and possession of a stolen firearm, Young was prosecuted as a recidivist. Young is currently under indictment and awaiting trial for an aggravated assault charge for his attack on a corrections officer that left the victim with
seven stitches. The State was represented by Assistant District Attorney Jerry Rothschild and the Lead Detective on the case was Detective Kirkland of the SCMPD.
