RICHMOND, Tex - Nineteen-year-old Justin Rogers-Zenon plead guilty to Aggravated Robbery and was sentenced to 6 years deferred adjudication probation by 434th District Court Judge James H. Shoemake. The Richmond man was indicted for robbing the girl scouts of their cookie money in front of a local store.

In a plea agreement which satisfied both the victim of the crime and her mother, Rogers-Zenon was sentenced to serve 180 days in jail as a condition of his probation. He will also pay a $500 fine, $328 restitution to Girl Scout Troop 29152, and write an apology letter.

According to Assistant District Attorney John Hawkins, two girl scouts were selling cookies from a folding table outside of a local retail store when they were approached by Rogers-Zenon. As a car drove up next to their table, the defendant grabbed their cash box and jumped into the waiting car. Both of the girls ran after Rogers-Zenon and one was hit by the fleeing vehicle, later found to have been driven by a juvenile.

After speaking to witnesses and confirming Rogers-Zenon's identity from store surveillance videos, authorities arrested both the juvenile and the defendant - less than a week after the robbery.

"Detective J. L. Martin of the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office was instrumental in solving this case so quickly," stated prosecutor John Hawkins. "Able to locate key witnesses and physical evidence within days produced a solid investigation that resulted in a just punishment. Zenon will spend the first six months in jail after which he will be closely monitored for years. And the child witness won't have to endure the rigors of testifying before her attacker."

Zenon had been previously sentenced to three years confinement which was probated for three years, after having spent 120 days in detention. He also had to make restitution and write a letter of apology to the girl scouts.

Aggravated Robbery is a first-degree felony punishable by 5-99 years or life in prison and a fine up to $10,000.

Under the terms of the deferred adjudication, if Zenon violates his probation, he can be sentenced up to the maximum punishment of life in prison.

Twice convicted "FELON" back on street after 180 days? Sounds like he was also corrupting juvenile (get away driver). Wish the Girl Scouts would have got their hands on him.
