Pensacola home invader sentenced to prison

Terrell Williams (Escambia County Jail)

A Pensacola man pleaded no contest to multiple charges after a home invasion and kidnapping.

Circuit Judge Stephen Pitre sentenced Terrell Anthony Williams to 25 years in prison for home invasion robbery with a deadly weapon, armed kidnapping with a weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, two counts of aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony, two counts of false imprisonment with a weapon, false imprisonment of a child under 13 years of age, grand theft, conspiracy to commit a third degree felony, and introduction of contraband into a county detention facility.

Prosecutors say Williams and another man forced their way into a home on Fairfield Drive on February 8, 2017.

One man allegedly held family members at gunpoint, while Williams forced the father to drive to several ATMs, in an effort to obtain cash.

The father was hit in the head with a gun, and personal property from the home was stolen.

Two of the victims later identified Williams in a photo line-up.

The trial for Williams' alleged accomplice in the home invasion is scheduled for February. Shaba Savage is charged with multiple crimes, including aggravated assault, aggravated battery, and home invasion robbery.

Three people are charged in connection with Williams' contraband charge. Prosecutors say the cases against Linda Williams, Victoria Bell, and former corrections officer Kyle Hite are still pending.
