Staunton Jury Find Sanchez Guilty of Armed Robbery

Posted: Updated:

A Staunton jury has reached a verdict over an armed robbery case Tuesday evening.  The suspect was found guilty of helping rob a pizza-delivery driver and threatening to kill him over just a few dollars. The jury recommended a 15 year sentence.

The defense in this case argued that Carl Montgomery Sanchez, 29, is simply the wrong guy.  They pointed out that Sanchez has tattoos on his neck and cheek, something the alleged victim never mentioned to police.

The robbery took place last April, at a house on East Hampton Street in Staunton.  Sanchez and co-defendant Carlton Griffin are accused of robbing a Domino's driver for two pizzas, and just $7 in cash.

The witness never saw a gun, but told the jury that Sanchez stuck something in the small of his back and said, "I'll blow your head off."

Griffin has already pleaded guilty, but he did not testify in the trial against Sanchez.
