Defendant Convicted of Two Robberies

DATE:  May 5, 2017

CASE:  Pierre Cleveland (Case #15F05965) 

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Kristen Andersen, Career Criminal Prosecution Unit

Pierre Cleveland was convicted by jury of two counts of robbery for two separate robberies which took place in September 2015.  The jury also found that he used a gun during the course of the first robbery and was a felon in possession of a firearm.

On September 7, 2015 Cleveland went into a Chevron station on 4700 Florin Road with a firearm and robbed the sole employee. He stole money from the register and after the victim refused to get on the ground, he shot the firearm off two times before fleeing the scene. On September 29, 2015, Cleveland went to the Florin Shopping Center located at 6005 Florin Road. He robbed the victim of $5,600.00 in cash. The victim had just withdrawn the money from the US Bank and was about to get in his car when Cleveland struck him over the head and stole his money. Cleveland then fled the scene in a car that was waiting for him in the Sears parking lot. Officers were able to locate Cleveland in a nearby parking lot after the license plate of the fleeing vehicle was obtained. Cleveland was detained by law enforcement and was found to have half of the victim’s money and the gun from the first robbery on his person.  

Cleveland faces a maximum sentence of 27 years and 8 months in state prison.  Sentencing is set for June 2, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. in Department 40 before the Honorable Raoul Thorbourne.
