MARIETTA — A woman who used her Toyota Camry to run over a man she met in the electronics section of a Cobb Walmart was sentenced Monday to 15 years in prison.
Junmakia Racquel Henley, 47, of Kennesaw, was convicted of aggravated assault with a motor vehicle, aggravated battery and felony hit and run for running over her “sugar daddy” in his Marietta driveway two years ago, the Cobb District Attorney’s Office said.
The victim, a retired engineer in his 60s, first met Henley in February 2016 at the Chastain Meadows Walmart and asked her to lunch, said Kim Isaza, spokeswoman for the DA’s office. Over the next several days, she allowed him to buy her gifts and take her out, Isaza said, but by the end of the week, the man grew tired of being used and asked her to leave.
He drove Henley to get her car, which was parked in his driveway.
After she got in her car, she backed up and accelerated toward the man, who ended up on the hood of her sedan, Isaza said. Henley reversed again and the man was knocked to the ground before being run over a second time, crushing his legs. Henley drove off as the man screamed for help in his own driveway, Isaza said.
When Cobb Police caught up to Henley the next day, she denied being at the home at the time of the crash, Isaza said, and appeared undisturbed the man had been injured. In a police interview, she referred to him as “what’s his name.”
It took jurors just half an hour to convict Henley, who was sentenced by Cobb Superior Court Judge Gregory Poole to 15 years in prison followed by a decade of probation.
