23-year old, Daijon Naseer Harrison, of the 2100 block of North Woodstock Street in Philly, was sentenced for his role in a failed robbery that left a Pottstown man dead on October 23, 2021. A report from the Mainline Media News said Harrison was sentenced to 7 to 20 years in prison by Montgomery County Court Judge William R. Carpenter, on Monday morning.
Harrison pleaded guilty to felony robbery charges and conspiracy to commit robbery. Harrison’s plea deal included him admitting to the lesser robbery charges, which allowed him to avoid a trial on homicide charges in the death of the victim, 27-year old, Robert “Country” Stiles, who was fatally shot during the attempted robbery.
Harrison admitted that he and co defendant, 21-year old, Samir Bentley planned the robbery. And that they recruited 17-year old, Ahmed Mohammed, also of Philly, to help rob Stiles of an undisclosed amount of Marijuana and cash.
Prosecutors said Harrison gave the signal to execute the robbery. Mohammed, who was armed with a 9mm, pulled Stiles into an alcove on East High Street with the intent to rob Stiles. Harrison then passed a .45 caliber handgun to Bentley who fired three shots at Stiles, killing him. Prosecutors said Stiles was unarmed.
Mohammed, who was 16-years old at the time of the crime, was charged as an adult. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 23 to 46 years in prison for his role in the murder/robbery.
Bentley decided to take his chances at trial. With the help of testimony from Harrison, Bentley was convicted on charges of second-degree murder, a killing committed during the course of another felony (robbery). He was sentenced to serve a mandatory life in prison term.
Harrison said he came up with the idea to rob Stiles after he saw him earlier in the day counting a large amount of cash at the gas station.
