Jasmine Williams Robbery Case Ends in Guilty Pleas and Sentences for Seven Defendants

SAN ANTONIO, Texas – The last of the seven defendants charged in the 2020 robbery turned capital murder case has been sentenced for her role in the crime. Alissa Weese, 25, has been sentenced to 10 years deferred adjudication by State District Judge Velia J. Meza, but she has been ordered to serve six months in prison first before starting her probation.

Weese was one of seven individuals charged with capital murder and robbery in connection with the death of 19-year-old Jasmine Williams. Williams was shot by intruders in her far West Side home while her two young children were present.

Judicial proceedings against the defendants have been ongoing for three years, with the case being riddled with complications. Weese’s sentencing marks the end of a long legal battle that has seen charges filed, dismissed, and refiled as the defendants shifted blame, made threats, and changed their stories.

As part of the negotiation, Weese pleaded guilty to the lesser offense of robbery, a second-degree felony that carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. Other defendants in the case have also received varying sentences ranging from 5 to 30 years in prison.

The case was heard in the 226th District Court in San Antonio. The sentencing of the final defendant brings closure to a tragic case that has seen the loss of a young mother and the sentencing of multiple individuals involved in the crime.
