Orlando, FL –U.S. District Judge Carlos E. Mendoza has sentenced Windesthon Junior Pierre (22, Winter Garden) to 12 years and 3 months in federal prison for robbery. Judge Mendoza also sentenced Stephon Tevonta Johnson (22, Kissimmee) to 11 years and 9 months’ imprisonment for the same offense.

According to court documents, on September 21, 2017, Pierre, Johnson, and De Los Santos robbed a Walgreens store in Orlando.

They then attempted to gain access to the pharmacy by firing a gun into the pharmacy door, but were unsuccessful. However, they were able to steal $4,850 in cash.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Alejandro J. Salicrup.
