January 24 , 2014

Baltimore, Maryland – U.S. District Judge George L. Russell, III sentenced James F. Honesty, age 25, Washington, D.C., today to 114 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release, for carjacking and for being a felon in possession of a gun.

The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Special Agent in Charge Stephen E. Vogt of the Federal Bureau of Investigation; Chief Mark A. Magaw of the Prince George’s County Police Department; and Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela D. Alsobrooks

According to Green=s plea agreement, in the early morning hours of June 6, 2012, the victim was in the 600 block of Audrey Lane in Oxon Hill, Maryland. The victim had retrieved some items from her car and was walking home when Honesty pointed a shotgun at her face and demanded her car keys. The victim gave Honesty the keys and he drove away in the victim’s car. Honesty was apprehended after police chased the stolen vehicle from Washington, D.C. to Cheverly, Maryland. Honesty and the other occupants of the car ran away after the vehicle crashed and Honesty was arrested nearby. Police recovered a 16 gauge shotgun with a sawed off barrel and a .380 caliber semi-automatic handgun in the vehicle. Both firearms were loaded and had one round in the chamber. Honesty was prohibited from possessing a firearm due to a previous felony conviction.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein commended the FBI, Prince George’s County Police Department and Prince George’s County State’s Attorney's Office for their work in the investigation. Mr. Rosenstein thanked Assistant United States Attorney William D. Moomau, who prosecuted the case.
