SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A Savannah man was sentenced Tuesday to life in prison plus five years of probation in connection with an armed robbery. 

Daqwan Issac Young, 21, of Savannah, was found guilty of armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony for the 2011 armed robbery of Xavier McGiver, according to the Chatham County District Attorney's Office.  

The other man charged in the crime, Quayshaun Floyd, 21, entered into an open ended plea Monday and received 15 years in prison with 11 to serve without parole, according to the district attorney's office.

On April 8, 2011, McGiver was at Floyd's friend's house in Yamacraw Village when he was beaten and robbed by a man with a shotgun, who he later identified as Young.

His shoes, hat, phone, pants and $65 and debit card were stolen. Floyd, who came into the home and participated in the robbery, was later arrested by Savannah-Chatham Metro Police wearing McGiver's hat and shoes.

Young was prosecuted as a recidivist because of his prior convictions and being on felony probation. He is also currently under indictment and awaiting trial for an aggravated assault charge for an attack on a corrections officer, according to the district attorney's office.

    Relaxing outside this Father's Day afternoon? Showers and thunderstorms will continue drifting across the Coastal Empire and Low Country into the early evening hours.
