Second jail escapee convicted of robbery, other charges

From the Associated Press:

LOS ANGELES — The second man who escaped from a Los Angeles County jail last week and was recaptured hours later has been convicted of multiple counts of armed robbery.
A Superior Court jury on Wednesday convicted 24-year-old Jose Aldana of home invasion robbery, assault and false imprisonment. The charges stemmed from a violent home invasion and a string of armed robberies in March 2009.
Another jury found Aldana’s co-defendant, Winder Barrios, guilty of the same counts on Tuesday.
Aldana and Barrios face 50 years in state prison each when they are sentenced.
Police say Barrios and Aldana escaped from the North County Correctional Facility near Castaic last week and were found hiding in a metal storage container nearby.
They have not been charged yet with the jail break.
