Two Defendants Convicted of Home Invasion Robbery, Kidnapping

Two defendants who were accused of three counts of first-degree robbery in concert, six counts of kidnapping for extortion, and three counts of kidnapping for robbery were found guilt in a jury trial that concluded yesterday at Sacramento Superior Court.

Antione Cisco and Reynaldo Eknar were found guilty in the June 20, 2016 incident were they kicked down the front door of a home where a mother and her two sons lived. The defendants demanded money and property, beat the victims, and forced them to the ground at gunpoint while they searched for valuables

Additionally, the defendants then forced the victims into a vehicle, drove them to a bank, and told one of the sons to withdraw $8,000. The son followed orders out of fear for the safety of his brother and mother, who were being held in the car at gunpoint by the defendants. 

The defendants then drove to another bank and told the son to withdraw another $8,000. Instead, the son informed bank personnel of the situation and they called 911. Officers arrived and took the defendants into custody.

Eknar has prior convictions for illegal possession of a firearm and possession of marijuana for sale. Both defendants face a maximum sentence of 109 years and 8 months, plus 63 years to life in prison. 

Sentencing is set for November 17, 2017, at 9:00 a.m. in Department 16 before Judge Marjorie Koller.
