Saunders

Judge Joseph W. Milam, Jr., found Danville man Quintell Kamaile Saunders guilty on all counts after he entered four guilty pleas this morning at Danville City circuit court.

Saunders, 23, pled guilty to two felony counts of robbery with a firearm, one felony count of using a firearm during commission of a felony and two felony counts of statutory burglary.

Saunders faces a maximum of three life sentences plus three years, restitution and court fees, Milam said.

Between Jan. 11 and Jan. 14, Saunders was implicated in two armed robberies in Danville.

Around midnight on the night of Jan. 11, Saunders threatened a clerk at Charlie's Stop N Shop in Danville with a handgun, demanding money and collecting $2,268 from the register.

On Jan. 14, Saunders entered the Astoria Hotel in Danville, wearing a mask and brandishing a handgun, this time demanding money and collecting $261.

Danville Police arrested Saunders the night of Jan. 14 and have held him without bail since.

Johnny Burton, the getaway driver, already pled guilty and would have testified against Saunders if the case had gone to trial, Milam said.

The case was continued this morning to Aug. 28 at 10 a.m. for sentencing.
