Mother Forces Sons and Other Teens To Rob For Her

June 2, 2009

Arizona (ChattahBox) – A 51-year-old woman has been arrested after organizing a group of young men, age 12 – 20, to commit armed robberies.

Cynthia Roberson was allegedly desperate for money after she lost her job, The Arizona Republic reports.

Her solution to her financial troubles were to coax a group of young men, including her 12 and 14 year old sons, to jump teens on the streets, rob them at gun point, and become violent if necessary.

While she claims she was the getaway driver, and had no part in orchestrating the plans, all boys involved state that she would guilt them into committing the robberies, and that it was her plan all along.

The money stolen was used for her bills, and she is thought to be responsible for dozens of robberies throughout Arizona.
