A security guard from T.G. Glover Primary School was yesterday sentenced to three years in prison for shooting his ex-girlfriend in the leg.

Last month, Trevon Stevens, 32, of Garden Hills, pleaded guilty to housebreaking and causing grievous bodily harm to Wendina Smith in September 2015. At the time of his plea, he asked for a probation report. Yesterday, Stevens asked Magistrate Samuel McKinney to proceed with sentencing, even though the report was not ready.

According to the prosecution, Stevens, who has previous convictions, forced his way into the home Smith shared with her family at Deveaux Street. Stevens, who had reportedly been physically abusive in the past, attacked Smith, put her in a headlock and shot her in the leg. Before leaving the area in his Honda Accord, Stevens allegedly pointed his handgun at Smith's mother and sister and threatened to shoot them if they went to police.

McKinney ordered that Stevens pay $3,000 in restitution to Smith or spend an additional six months in prison. On the housebreaking charge, Stevens is to pay a $1,500 fine to avoid spending a year in prison. The sentences were ordered to run concurrently.
