Two young men decided to rob a convenience store with masks and knives. One man entered the store and our client acted as the lookout. The knife was threateningly waved in the clerk’s direction but no one was injured. Approximately $20.00 in cash and a few pack of cigarettes were stolen. The two suspects then fled into the night.
In law, our client would be equally guilty of robbery as his accomplice.
RESULT: At a sentencing hearing, the defendant received one of the lowest sentences on record – specifically, our client was sentenced to twenty-five days in jail (to be served intermittently on weekends) and three years of probation (including two-hundred-and-forty hours of community service).
