The other is 19-year-old Christopher Ochoa. He is 5’4 and weighs 126 pounds. His offense is second-degree robbery and the use of a firearm.

    Why these guys who committed robbery were locked in for life, and people who have killed others just get a few years in jail? Probably they don’t have money to buy justice.
    Now, they are wearing other clothes, staying in Mexico having pollo en mole or menudo.
