Two of seven people accused of participating in a home invasion spree in Clovis and Portales last summer have been convicted of charges.
District Attorney Matt Chandler said Jeremy Enriquez, 20, and Oscar Hernandez, 17, were found guilty by a Clovis jury Tuesday of charges stemming from their crime spree.
They were accused of breaking into a Clovis home July 28 with two other juveniles and attacking the owner while burglarizing the home.
Chandler said Enriquez fired gunshots at the homeowner, who was running away from the house.
Hernandez was convicted of kidnapping, aggravated burglary, conspiracy to commit aggravated burglary and concealing his identity.
Enriquez was convicted of kidnapping, aggravated burglary, conspiracy to commit aggravated burglary, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, intimidation of a state’s witness, and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Enriquez faces 38 years in prison.
Chandler also said he will seek adult sanctions against Hernandez. If sentenced as an adult, Hernandez faces up to 24 1/2 years in prison.
