Spartanburg County Man Gets 10 Year Prison Sentence For Botched Robbery

Posted: Updated:
SPARTANBURG, S.C. -

Cornelius J. Staggers, 21, was convicted, by jury, Tuesday of trying to rob a man and woman at a Spartanburg apartment complex.

In 2011, solicitors say Staggers approached a 19-year-old man and 21-year-old woman at Crescent hills Apartment Complex in Spartanburg.

He told them he was going to rob them and then fired a handgun into the air. The 19-year-old man began to flee and the prosecutors say that Staggers shot the man in the lower back.

The victim was later treated at Spartanburg Regional for his injuries.

Police found Staggers a day later at the Apartment Complex, and found the clothes he was wearing during the crime in woods close to the scene.

Staggers will have to serve 80 percent of his sentence before he will be eligible for parole, and has also been told to pay close to $4,500.00 in restitution to the State Office of Victim Assistance.
