Defendant Sentenced for Robberies

DATE:  June 2, 2017

CASE:  Pierre Cleveland (Case #15F05965) 

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

The Honorable Raoul Thorbourne sentenced Pierre Cleveland to 25 years in prison.  On May 4, 2017, a jury convicted Cleveland of two counts of robbery for two separate robberies.  The jury also found that Cleveland 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 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 and robbed another victim of $5,600 in cash. The victim had just withdrawn the money from his bank and was about to get in his car when Cleveland struck him over the head and stole his money.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.
