Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Brooklyn man found guilty of robbing drug dealer, terrorizing his family in brutal home invasion stickup”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A sadistic robber who bound a pregnant woman with duct tape while ransacking a Brooklyn drug dealer’s apartment could spend the rest of his life in jail for his conviction Tuesday in federal court.

Devone Jefferys, 27, and an accomplice posed as cops and stormed into the Williamsburg apartment of a heroin dealer, then held him and his family at gunpoint as he ransacked the place, looking for drugs and cash. He and his accomplice pointed guns at a pregnant woman and the dealer’s sister, ordered them to lay on the floor and bound them with duct tape.

They forced the pregnant woman to lay on her stomach as they pointed a gun at her head, prosecutors said.

When the dealer’s sister tossed a bag of heroin out a widow, Jefferys forced her into an alley outside and assaulted her, federal prosecutors said. He then went on the run, living in his car to avoid capture.

Jefferys’ accomplice, Ronnell Peterkin, testified against him during his six-day trial in Brooklyn federal court, and on Tuesday, a jury convicted him of federal robbery, attempted robbery and weapon charges.
