VICKSBURG, MS (WLBT) - Four Vicksburg teens accused of robbing pedestrians at gunpoint last spring were arraigned in circuit court after being indicted this week by the Warren County Grand Jury.
18-year-old Blake Reed, 17-year-old Deshawn Williams, 17-year-old Jacory Wright and 17-year-old Conti Tillis, face multiple counts of armed robbery in as many as five separate instances in May 2009.
Williams also faces one count of strong-armed robbery from an incident on May 11th.
19-year-old Sha'Kayla Caples was given immunity from prosecution as long as she testifies against the others in court.
Caples was a stand-out on the Warren Central High School girls' basketball team for four years.
