BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - 18-year-old Errol Fowler Graham and 17-year-old Robert Hillman received their sentences in court today.
The pair carjacked a Kenmore woman in Buffalo in November 2009. She was kidnapped and forced to drive back to her apartment. Then she and her roommate were forced at knife point to take money out of their bank accounts at various ATM machines.
Graham was sentenced Friday to 15 years in jail, while Hillman will spend 5 years behind bars.
"When these ladies go to the car or wake up they'll think about this... This isn't all about you or any deficiencies you have or any deficiencies in your upbringing . It doesn't make this right or excuse this. This was not a mistake it was an intentional heinous crime." Judge Christopher Burns warned at sentencing today. One woman suffered knife wounds during the attack, but neither victim was seriously hurt.
