A Tasley man could be fined up to $602,500 and sentenced to two life terms plus 23 years in prison for robbery and other crimes that occurred in March at a Painter convenience store.
Antonio Lamar Harmon, 37, of Mini Road, pleaded guilty last week in Accomack Circuit Court to malicious maiming, robbery, use of a sawed-off shotgun, and brandishing a firearm. He was remanded to the Accomack Jail to await sentencing.
A police report stated an armed man went to Corner Mart on Lankford Highway and demanded money from the clerk around 11:30 p.m., March 28. Harmon assaulted a customer as he fled the scene on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.
In another case, Larry Dynell Justice, 54, of John Cane Road in Greenbush, was convicted of being an accessory before the fact of grand larceny. The crime occurred March 16 at Advantage Lawn Care. Justice was initially charged with grand larceny. A short form pre-sentence report was ordered. The defendant was remanded to jail.
Jenna Nicole Holmes, 19, of Accomac Road in Accomac, pleaded guilty to assaulting a police officer on May 16. The case was continued until March. Court records show Holmes was walking in traffic and shouting obscenities at passing drivers when Deputy John Rose of the Accomack County Sheriff’s Office was called to the scene.
Calvin Nathaniel Nock Jr., 40, of Horntown Circle in Horntown, pleaded guilty to possessing cocaine on Dec. 26, 2017. A charge of obstruction of justice was not prosecuted. The case was continued to Jan. 17.

Thomas Ulric Dennis, 61, of Withams Road in Withams, was convicted of two counts of possession of cocaine. He was given a total of six years in prison with all but three months suspended. The first offense was in October 2016. Dennis was initially treated as a first offender and judgment was with-held. But when he was caught a second time, in April 2018, the first charge was reinstated.
