Jeffrey Noel, Herichie Paul, Awetu Megersa Sentenced for Four Carjackings in Florida

U.S. District Judge Paul Byron has sentenced Jeffrey Noel (25, Orlando), Herichie Paul (21, Orlando), and Awetu Megersa (23, Orlando) to 25, 16, and 13 years in federal prison, respectively, for carjacking and possessing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.


According to court documents, Noel, Paul, and Megersa were part of a carjacking crew that carjacked four victims at gunpoint in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties during the first week of January 2017. One victim, a fast-food delivery driver, was confronted by the defendants and others while attempting to deliver food to an abandoned apartment in Orange County. The defendants forced the victim into the apartment at gunpoint and then removed the victim’s clothing, cellphone, wallet, and the keys to his minivan. A few days later, another victim was carjacked at gunpoint as he was returning from work.

This case was investigated by the FBI. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Nathan W. Hill.
