Description: Greensboro, North Carolina criminal law lawyer represented Defendant charged with charged with robbery and felony possession and use of a firearm.
On December 28, 2020, Deante Tre’Devaughn Cheek and Amir Joseph Marshall robbed the owner of a business located on Randleman Road in Greensboro at gunpoint. During the incident, the store owner and Marshall were shot. Cheek and Marshall left the scene and got into a blue Honda Accord. Approximately 25 minutes later, Marshall arrived at Randolph Hospital in a blue Honda Accord. Hospital surveillance video shows Marshall being helped into the hospital by an individual whose clothing matched that of one of the assailants at the Randleman Road robbery.
On the date of the robbery, Cheek was on supervised probation with the North Carolina Department of Public Safety and had been equipped with a GPS ankle monitor. A review of the GPS data showed that CHEEK’s ankle monitor was in the vicinity of the robbery location during the time of the robbery. CHEEK’s ankle monitor then traveled to Randolph Health hospital in Asheboro at a rate of around 120 miles per hour.
Cheeks’ sentencing is scheduled to take place on April 25, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, before United States District Judge Loretta C. Biggs.
