A Big Spring woman convicted of burglary in 118th District Court in 2009 had her nine-year sentence affirmed by the Eleventh District of Texas Court of Appeals last week.
Sabrina Gutierrez Perez, 45, was sentenced to nine years in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice facility and fined $1,000 in March 2009 by a jury for her part in the October 2008 burglary of the Northcrest Apartments office.
The memorandum opinions were issued by Justice Rick Strange from a panel including Chief Justice Jim Wright and Justice Terry McCall, upholding the conviction.
Perez was accused of assisting Enrique Alvarez, 47, when they broke into the Northcrest office in the early morning hours of Oct. 23. Computer equipment and related items were taken in the incident. Alvarez had previously pleaded guilty to his part in the burglary, District Attorney Hardy L. Wilkerson said, and received a sentence of one year in a state jail facility.
