Waco, Tx — A Waco man was sentenced to 36 years in prison for his role in an aggravated robbery.
Alexis Bo Perez, 19, received 36 years for each of his two counts of aggravated robbery along with $20,000 in fines. A spokeswoman with McLennan County District Attorney’s office says Judge Ralph Stother will allow Perez to serve the sentences concurrently.
The jury deliberated for more than six hours, reaching a verdict shortly after 9:30 p.m. Thursday night.
Perez was convicted in early February, but a mistrial was declared in the punishment phase of the trial. Therefore, the punishment phase was retried, concluding with a sentence after a lengthy deliberation Thursday evening.
Perez went on an armed robbery spree back in September 2011, robbing four businesses. This conviction is for his role in a Domino’s Pizza robbery where he went into the location on Wooded Acres Drive, displayed a handgun, and demanded money. Police eventually used a stolen cell phone to track evidence back to Perez.
Perez is also charged with robbing Papa John’s Pizza, on Bosque Boulevard, Chesalon store on North 19th Street, and Skinney’s convenience store on Sanger Avenue. All incidents occurred within about a 24 hour time period.
