Odessa Woman Sentenced After Pleading Guilty to Robbery Charges

ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

An Odessa woman is headed to prison for a long time after pleading guilty to robbery charges.

Prosecutors say back in August of 2013, Maria Navarrete and Osiel Alvarez tried to rob a woman outside H-E-B.

Navarette was sentenced to 18 years behind bars.

Alvarez was given life in prison after pleading guilty last year.

A woman was walking towards the grocery store when a car pulled up next to her.

Alvarez was inside and asked her for directions.

He tried to hand her a piece of paper. The woman reached for it and that’s when the man grabbed her purse.

The report says Navarrete was the driver.

She hit the gas and that caused the woman to fall and she was dragged by the car.

She eventually broke free but was left with cuts and bruises.

The couple was caught just a short time later.
