ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – A man who terrorized a family has been found guilty by a St. Louis jury.  James Willie Brown has been found Brown guilty of robbery, armed criminal action, and endangering the welfare of a child.

The St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office posted this statement to their website, “In November 2012, Brown and another man forced their way into a home in the 4500 block of San Francisco in the Penrose neighborhood. The three children inside were held at gunpoint, as Brown forced their mother to collect all her valuables, including a laptox, an Xbox, and jewelry. When the woman’s husband came home, Brown robbed him, too. Then, Brown ordered them all to the basement, where the family managed to escape. Brown’s words during the ordeal: “This ain’t a game, we serious.”

Sentencing is scheduled for Tuesday. Brown could face up to life in prison.

    What’s a laptox? Perhaps, FOX should either train their monkeys slapping on the keyboards better, or train their proof reader to do their job. This is the third poorly written, non-proof-checked, “journalism piece” I’ve read by FOX2 in the last week. Why are you on my FB? How can I remove this drivel?
