A teenager who kept information from police during a murder investigation was sentenced Tuesday to up to 10 years behind bars. If he does well in juvenile corrections over the next four years, he will have an opportunity for probation when he turns 21.
Gabriel Olivo is 17, and is charged with three felonies and was tried as an adult in connection to the robbery and murder of Roberto Gomez.
Gomez was shot to death by Olivo’s friend, Juan Menchaca in Nampa. The boys were all 16 at the time.
The Idaho Press reports, Olivo was convicted of accessory to harbor a felon, intimidating a witness and concealing evidence. He initially lied to a grand jury when testifying about the case.
He is one of four teenagers charged in this case. Juan Menchaca is set to be sentenced in October for first-degree murder and robbery.
