Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton has said guilty verdicts have been returned against two Flint men who robbed a Flint Township woman while she was unloading groceries from her car.

A jury convicted 32-year-old Eric Roshawn Smith of armed robbery, felony firearm, and being a felon in possession of a firearm for the June 25, 2012 incident at Clovertree Apartments in Flint Township. Smith faces a possible sentence of life in prison on the armed robbery conviction.

A co-defendant, 33-year-old Anthony Dunbar, also of Flint, was convicted of felony firearm and being a felon in possession of a firearm related to the same incident. He was acquitted of the armed robbery charge.

Leyton said “we continue to battle crime on the streets of our community through the criminal justice system in the courts. The challenges are great, but we continue to do all we can to bring justice to the victims and take the bad guys off the streets.”

In a statement, the prosecutor’s office said they will be seeking enhanced penalties based on prior felony convictions for Smith and Dunbar when they are sentenced.
