Armed Carjacker Sentenced to 30 Years in Federal Prison

DALLAS — Felipe Pinon, 28, of Dallas, was sentenced this morning by U.S. District Judge Sam A. Lindsay to 30 years in federal prison, following his guilty plea in November 2015 to felony offenses stemming from his role in the armed carjacking of two people last year in Dallas, announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.

Pinon pleaded guilty to one count of carjacking and aiding and abetting and one count of using, carrying, and brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence and aiding and abetting.

Pinon’s co-defendant in the case, Monica Renee Metcalf, 22, also of Dallas, pleaded guilty in November 2015 to the same offenses. She faces a statutory penalty of up to 15 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine on the carjacking count and up to life in federal prison on the firearm count. She is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Lindsay on July 25, 2016.

According to documents filed in the case, on January 18, 2015, Metcalf approached an individual (Victim 1) at a gas station near the 3300 block of Webb Chapel Extension in Dallas and asked Victim 1 for a ride. Metcalf directed Victim 1 to drive her to an apartment complex across the street, and when they arrived there, Pinon approached the vehicle and spoke with Metcalf. Metcalf then asked Victim 1 to give Pinon a ride as well, but Victim 1 refused. Pinon then brandished a handgun and pointed it at Victim 1 and demanded that Victim 1 give him everything he had. Pinon and Metcalf ordered Victim 1 out of the vehicle and drove away in it.

The next day, Metcalf approached and briefly spoke with an individual (Victim 2) who was seated in his vehicle near the 300 block of S. Seagoville Road in Dallas. As Metcalf walked away from Victim 2, Pinon approached Victim 2. Pinon brandished a handgun and ordered Victim 2 to get out of the vehicle. Then, Pinon, Metcalf, and another individual drove away in Victim 2’s vehicle.

The Dallas Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian Poe and Deputy Criminal Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney Gary Tromblay are prosecuting the case.
