Woman accused of setting man up in armed robbery sentenced to 3 years' probation

By John Counts

The 23-year-old Ypsilanti Township woman accused of setting up a man in an armed robbery last September was sentenced Thursday to three years probation, including six months on a SCRAM alcohol tether, according to court records.

The woman, Amber Marie Davis, also has to pay more than $3,000 in fines and is not allowed contact with the man police say she set up, records indicate.

On Feb. 25, Amber Marie Davis pleaded no contest to two added charges of unarmed robbery and conspiracy to commit unarmed robbery in exchange for the dismissal of armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony charge.

Her codefendants have already been sentenced. Deandre Mitchell, 20, of Belleville, was sentenced in November to 5-20 years in prison for the armed robbery. Eddie Nailor, 20, of Ypsilanti, was sentenced Feb. 14 to 42-81 months in prison after pleading no contest to an armed robbery charge in January, according to court records.

Police said Mitchell and Nailor robbed a man outside Lakeshore Apartments in Ypsilanti Township early on Sept. 14 after the man went to the complex to see Davis. The man went to Davis’ apartment and then went to see his friend, but Davis called him a short time later and told him to come back to her place, police said.

Mitchell and Nailor then robbed the man at gunpoint outside the complex and fled, police said. Davis was arraigned on charges a little more than a week after Nailor and Mitchell were taken into custody. An investigation revealed Davis called the man who was robbed and lured him to the location where he was confronted by the two men, police said.

The Washtenaw County Jail does not have a booking picture of Davis.

hopefully she gets some new sober friends or the 6 months on the alcohol tether will turn into jail time.

Sounds fair to me. Probation isn't a piece of cake and 3 years is a longtime.

Very surprised to see this happened in Ypsi Twp.

Wondering what the other two were able to plea to...

Oops... Missed it in my first read. Interesting that there is no mention of a conspiracy charge for either of them.

Wow. Conspiracy to commit armed robbery is no laughing matter. She pled out to 3 years probation. Our courts are so screwed up they can't see daylight anymore.

The courts are clog up and the prisons lock the highest % of the people up of any "free" country. She is only 23 years old, prison would do her more harm then good. Rehabilitation should not be forgotten over punishment.
