A 35th District Court jury decided Thursday that Phillip Michael Johnson, 23, of Brownwood, was involved with two other people in the Jan. 14 robbery and shooting of a Lake Brownwood man.

Jurors convicted Johnson of aggravated robbery and began hearing punishment testimony Thursday afternoon. Punish-ment testimony will resume this morning.

Co-defendants Kris Balfour and Stephonze Rae Balfour, who are cousins, pleaded guilty earlier and were sentenced to 12 and 15 years respectively.

Defense attorney John Lee Blagg sought to convince jurors that testimony elicited by prosecutor Sam Moss, which put Johnson at the scene of the crime, was unreliable.

Authorities have maintained that the robbery was drug-related.

Andrew Shawn Prewitt, 38, was shot in the upper thigh when two men with guns forced their way into the trailer at Shamrock Shores where Prewitt lived with his roommate, Eddie Jowers, 39, and Johnson acted as a lookout, authorities have said.
