PHILADELPHIA—Oronda Ligon, 31, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was sentenced October 16, 2013, to 108 months in prison for an armed home invasion in which an Upper Darby woman was terrorized. Ligon was convicted in March 2013 of Hobbs Act robbery after breaking into a home with two other men in May 2011. While in the process of carrying a safe out of the home, the robbers were confronted by a female resident of the home, who had been in the basement, heard a noise, and came upstairs to find the three men robbing her house. Ligon pushed the victim to the floor, and one of his cohorts pointed a gun at the victim’s chest. The robbers took a safe containing business proceeds and family jewelry totaling more than $50,000.
In addition to the prison term, U.S. District Court Judge Mitchell Goldberg ordered three years of supervised release and restitution in the amount of $54,900.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Upper Darby Police Department. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Anthony Wzorek.
