      ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.  –  A federal jury returned a guilty verdict on Sept. 29 against Rhonda Quintana, 39, of Albuquerque, on one count of aiding and abetting and bank robbery. Quintana will remain on conditions of release pending sentencing, which has not been scheduled.

      According to a federal indictment and other court records, on March 13, 2018, Quintana drove James Verdream to the Rio Grande Credit Union on 4th Street NW in Albuquerque. Verdream entered the credit union and passed a demand note to a teller. Verdream took money from the teller, returned to the car, and fled with Quintana.

      Verdream pleaded guilty on Dec. 27, 2018, and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Quintana faces up to 20 years in prison.

      The FBI investigated the case with assistance from the United Stated Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Paul Mysliwiec and Jaymie Roybal are prosecuting the case.
