Two men who were each sentenced to 20-years for robbing a gas station in 2013 received reduced sentences during Court of Appeal hearings this week.
Darryl Wilson and Melville Samuel robbed Midway Service station stealing a money bag around 11 am April 29, 2013.
Samuel who worked at the gas station was reportedly on vacation at the time of the robbery.
The employee is believed to have masterminded the heist using his inside knowledge of the practices of the business.
He was masked and armed with a gun by no shots were fired during the incident.
Co-accused Wilson reportedly served as the getaway driver.
After considering the circumstances of the case, the court of appeal reduced Wilson’s sentence from 20 to 15 years.
However only 4 years was taken from Samuel’s sentence bringing it to 16.
The men were represented at the appeal hearing by attorney Sherfield Bowen.
