An Ellicott City man faces 20 years in prison without parole after his conviction for attempted armed robbery on Wednesday.
Kahlil Julian Hall, 33, of the 4900 block of Watergroove Court, was convicted of attempted armed robbery and four counts of use of a firearm in the commission in a crime, first-degree burglary, and related charges by a jury in Carroll County Circuit Court after two days of testimony, according to a news release from the Carroll County State's Attorney's Office.
A sentencing date has not been determined, according to the release, but Hall will face a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years without the possibility of parole.
Hall's conviction resulted from a Sept. 29, 2014, home invasion, in which Hall and another man broke into an occupied Mount Airy home at 4 a.m., wearing masks, wielding shotguns, and demanding money and drugs from the people there, according to the release. One of the people within the home was able to call 911, according to the release, and Maryland State Police — as well as Carroll County Sheriff's Office deputies — arrived on the scene to find that Hall and his accomplice had been disarmed by the people within the home.
Hall's accomplice was Clyde Harris Brown III, 35, of Dayton, Maryland, who pleaded guilty to armed robbery and used of a firearm in the commission of a felony or crime of violence on May 11, for his role in the home invasion. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 14, according to electronic court files.
