This is Quinones' third robbery conviction. He was sentenced to seven years in 2005 for armed robbery with a handgun. That sentence was served concurrently with another seven-year term for armed vehicular hijacking.
Despite being handed a fresh 12-year term and his previous convictions, records show that Quinones is scheduled to be paroled in four years—on June 21, 2019.
Sowell had been released from prison one month earlier after serving a fraction of a 3-year sentence, also for robbery.
His parole date has not yet been set.
