LIMA — A woman who served as the getaway driver in a shooting that left a man paralyzed last year was expected to be sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty Tuesday.

India Williams, 21, pleaded guilty to felonious assault, a second-degree felony. In exchange for the plea, the prosecution agreed to a four-year prison sentence for Williams.

The prosecution also dismissed the gun specification along with two other felonies, complicity to having a gun under a court sanction and complicity to attempted murder.

Williams is scheduled to be sentenced May 9 in Allen County Common Pleas Court.

Williams and Dearious Carter, 28, were involved in the Sept. 12 shooting of 24-year-old Tyrell Jackson outside a home at 655 S. Elizabeth St. The shooting was over a woman.

Jackson was left paralyzed and must use a wheelchair to get around.

Carter was sentenced to 13 years in prison after pleading guilty to multiple charges last month. He was the shooter.
