Fake missionaries get possible life sentence for Las Vegas robbery

Posted by Neil Shouse | Jan 03, 2015 | 0 Comments

Recently a Clark County District Court judge handed down a possible life sentence to two men who pretended to be Mormon missionaries in order to gain access to and rob a Las Vegas home. In September a jury convicted them of armed robbery, kidnapping, conspiracy, armed burglary, and battery. The two men are twenty-nine and twenty-six years old and previously served with each other in the Air Force.

During the June 2013 robbery, the two men donned the typical Mormon missionary clothing of white shirts, black pants, black shoes, and black ties. They also beat an inhabitant, but he survived. Later he claimed that the two men stole $3,000 as well as some marijuana.

During the sentencing, neither of the defendants spoke asking for lenient sentences. The men may be eligible for release after seven years. For more on this story, go to: http://lasvegassun.com/news/2014/dec/24/2-men-get-prison-mormon-ruse-robbery/
