A Montgomery man faces 20 years to life in prison after a jury convicted him this week of second degree robbery.
Curtis Williams Jr. was found guilty of robbing a store on Mobile Highway in November 2017. Williams and two other men took items from the store and left without paying, according to a release from the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office.
When a store manager followed the men out of the store, Williams showed her a firearm and threatened to “blow her brains out,” according to a release from the district attorney’s office.
At the time of the robbery, Williams was on parole for two 2004 second degree robbery convictions.
Sentencing is slated for Dec. 4.
“I am very pleased that justice was served in this case, and that this violent, repeat criminal offender will be removed from our streets,” Montgomery County District Attorney Daryl Bailey said. “This conviction should serve as a warning to anyone who is thinking about using a gun to commit a crime. You will be prosecuted and could end up spending the rest of your life behind bars.”
