Robert Allen was sentenced to seven years in prison today for the 2018 murder of XXX. Allen has already served five years which means h only has two years to serve out. He also was sentenced to twenty years of probation once released.
Last month in April the other three defendants were sentenced with two life sentences. Dedrick Williams, Michael Boatwright, and Trayvon Newsome were all found guilty of first-degree murder and robbery with a deadly weapon. Robert Allen agreed to testify against his co-defendants to shorten his own sentence.
Judge Michael Usan expressed to Allen words of encouragement...
"I genuinely believe that you are sorry for what you've done and not merely sorry for yourself and I think the remorse that you've shown is genuine,"
