Prosecutors said a man sentenced to more than 120 years in prison for his role in a violent Tennessee home invasion crime 11 years ago.

The Shelby County district attorney’s office said in a news release Saturday that a criminal court judge sentenced Giorgio Lakeith Jennings to 132 years in prison, including 126 years without the possibility of parole.

In November, Jennings, 33, was convicted on 22 felony charges, including aggravated rape and aggravated robbery.

According to authorities, Jennings and two other gunmen broke into a Memphis residence in January 2011. Three women ages 21 to 25 were raped, two men ages 21 and 26 were shot in the right hands, and another man was pistol whipped.

Prosecutors said the stolen items included two video game systems, knives, a bow, a spear, and several medieval-style swords.

Through DNA evidence, Jennings was outlined as a suspect, and stolen property was discovered in his residence.

Jennings was served with an arrest warrant in 2014. Prosecutors said he was arrested on the Tennessee charges three years later in St. Louis, where he was in jail for another crime.

Prosecutors said warrants were issued for the other two suspects based on DNA evidence.

Jennings is also facing a sexual assault charge in Las Vegas.
