Sean Thomas King, 36, was sentenced in March to 25 years in state prison for a series of armed robberies last year in Northeast Los Angeles. Mr. King, pictured above in the white paper mask he wore during the robberies, pleaded “no contest” to the charges. He is eligible to reduce his actual time by 15%, or 3.75 years, for good conduct in prison, and could receive somewhat more good conduct credit under Prop. 57, which was approved by voters in 2016. Sabrina Casillas, 45, who drove Mr. King to and from the robberies, was given a suspended sentence of six years in state prison. She must serve one year in county jail and then will be on probation. If she violates probation, she could be sent to prison for the five years remaining on her sentence.
