Convicted robber spared jail time

Twenty-one year old Lorenzo Ogaldez, who was remanded last week after he had pleaded guilty to charges of robbery and wounding, was spared custodial sentences when he appeared Monday before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser for sentencing.

Lorenzo Ogaldez was fined $3,000 for robbery and $1,000 for wounding. He was given until March 31, 2015 to pay the fines. If he defaults on payment he will serve 3 years and 1 year respectively.

The incident occurred on December 14. Lorenzo Ogaldez and another man, 21 year old Iran Jones, robbed Santos Sanchez of his cellular phone and $40 US currency, when Sanchez went outside of Lion King Club on King Street to make a phone call.

Last Friday, Iran Jones was sentenced to 5 years for robbery and 3 years for wounding, because he had previous conviction.
