Men Convicted In Pink House Stand-off Case Sentenced

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA -

The two men convicted last month in a case that resulted in a stand-off last May at Savannah's popular Olde Pink House restaurant, were sentenced in a Chatham County Courtroom today. Judge Michael Karpf sentenced 25 year old Kevin Brooks to 20 years with no parole for armed robbery plus an additional 10 years for burglary. 10 years each for false imprisonment and aggravated assault, plus 5 for possession of a controlled substance will be served concurrently. Brooks is the man who ran into the Pink House in May 2012 and got into a standoff with Police that essentially shut down several blocks of downtown for hours.

24 year old Brian Jones received a harsher sentence of Life in Prison for his armed robbery conviction based on the recidivist statute. Judge Karpf also sentenced Jones to 10 years each for false imprisonment , burglary, aggravated assault and theft by taking. Those sentences will be served concurrently.

The Pink House standoff began as an armed robbery at a home on Milton Avenue. A man and his son were held at gunpoint by Jones and Brooks overnight until Brooks drove the father downtown to retrieve money from an ATM. It was as they passed a police officer on the street that the victim drew the officer's attention. That officer shot at the car and Brooks jumped out and ran into the Olde Pink House.
