The duo apologized for their actions which took the lives of two security guards, Kevin Alvarez and Fidel Mai. The duo held up and robbed the establishment in July 2002 at Bowen and Bowen office located on Slaughterhouse Road.  Robateau, who is now a Prison Trustee and the CEO’s handyman, told the court that he was sorry for the pain he caused the family of the deceased.  Meanwhile, Leslie told the court he is very grateful for getting off the life sentence he was given upon conviction and his mind can now relax knowing that he will be getting a fix sentence.
