Sentencing Set Aside for Convicted Murderers Leslie Pipersburgh & Patrick Robateau

Leslie Pipersburgh & Patrick Robateau

Forty-five-year-old Leslie Pipersburgh and forty-two-year-old Patrick Robateau, the two men convicted of the murders of security guards Kevin Alvarez and Fidel Mai during a robbery at the Bowen and Bowen compound on Slaughterhouse Road back in 2002, appeared before the Supreme Court for mitigation plea to be heard on Friday.  The convicts told Justice Colin Williams that they have both transformed their lives since going to prison seventeen years ago and are doing productive work behind bars.  The men said that they regret their actions and are sorry for the pain they have caused the families. Attorney Hector Guerra asked the court to set a fixed term sentence since his clients have made strides in prison.  The crown was represented by Porsha Staine-Ferguson who asked for thirty-five years minimum before the men could be eligible for parole. Sentencing has been set for September eighteenth, 2019.
