CONWAY, SC (WMBF) — A jury found Jamar Antonio Huggins, 34, guilty of burglary in the first degree, kidnapping and armed robbery after deliberating for four hours.

The incident was a home invasion where a female deceived her friend to opening the door to her home on Memory Lane in Conway around 1 a.m. December 20, 2012 to an attack.

Huggins and another offender rushed in the home, pointed a gun at the victim and her 12-year-old daughter and demanded money from them. Before the victim could help her daughter, the unidentified co-defendant forced the victim into her master bathroom, according to a release.

Huggins' criminal jury trial began on September 16, 2014 in Horry County General Sessions Court. By September 17, 2014, Huggins was found guilty on all charges and sentenced to serve 15 years at the South Carolina Department of Corrections in Columbia, according to the release.

Huggins is required to complete 85 percent of his sentence before he is eligible for parole.
