Milton Ball, 41, of Aliceville, pled guilty last week to the charge of Robbery 1st Degree. The charge stems from a home invasion near Aliceville on January 12, 2018.
As reported by the Pickens County Herald on January 31, 2018, three black males forced their way into a home on Franconia Road and demanded money. The assailants forced the victim to his car and drove him to the ATM at the Aliceville branch of FNB of Central Alabama. The victim was assaulted, first inside the car as he tried to escape, then again outside the vehicle. A bystander witnessed the event and called police. The three suspects – Milton Ball, Darryl McCoy, and Joshua McMullen – were arrested by the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office and held on varying charges and bond amounts.
After the guilty plea, Ball was sentenced to 24 years in prison. Having been convicted of and sentenced to a Class A felony, Ball will be required to serve 85 percent of his sentence or 15 years (whichever comes first) before being eligible for parole.
Because Ball’s co-defendants are still awaiting trial, Assistant District Attorney Andy Hamlin differed official comment until all parties have been tried.
