BEAUFORT COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Two Lowcountry brothers who carjacked a handicapped man have been sentenced.

Lorenzo Vince Green, 29, and 25-year-old Javontay Jamal Green, both of Beaufort, were sentenced in federal court in Charleston for a carjacking that happened in 2016.

United States District Judge Richard M. Gergel sentenced Lorenzo Vince Green to 130 months to be followed by 5 years of supervised release.

"His prior record includes prior felony convictions for burglary and armed robbery," prosecutors said.

Javontay Jamal Green was sentenced to 97 months to be followed by three years of supervised release.

Authorities say on Feb. 27, 2016 the brothers approached a handicapped and wheelchair bound man as he was attempting to enter his car after leaving a restaurant in Beaufort.

"Lorenzo Vince Green then pointed a firearm at the victim before the brothers took the victim's car keys and fled with his vehicle," federal prosecutors said.

According to a report, officers found the vehicle a short time later and arrested the brothers as they were attempting to flee through a wooded area.

Prosecutors say Lorenzo Vince Green was also convicted of brandishing a firearm during the commission of a crime of violence.
