Two armed robbers were sentenced to 42 months of imprionment yesterday. Judge Tijhuis found both Alexander Raphael Brooks, 22 years old and his cousin Germain Denisio Chumney 26 years old guilty of robbery near the Jump Up casino in Philipsburg on February 12, whereby they took $660 dollars in cash, phones, keys to a car and personal papers from the victim under threat of a firearm. 18 months are to be suspended, and three years of probation. The robbers pointed a gun at their victim telling him’I am going to killy you’. A psychological evaluation of Brooks shows the defendant is fully aware of the difference between good and evil and that he can be held accountable for his actions. The court took into account the defendents social and emotional development and the level of his intellectual powers.
