According to Fox 28, a jury didn’t take their time convicting a champion body builder of multiple counts of robbery. Miguel Neil was found guilty after just 55 minutes of jury deliberations. He now faces a maximum of 120 years in prison.
He took his case to trial after running out on a plea deal that would have put him behind bars for 22 years. Tuesday, he rejected another plea deal that would have meant 30 years in prison.
Prosectuors say Neil committed more than 30 robberies in 2011 and 2012, only taking breaks to compete in body building competitions.
But after such a short jury deliberation, Neil’s attorney says he will appeal. Mark Collins says there was so much evidence presented, there’s no way the jury could have gone through it all in such a short time.
