CASE: Lorinzo Haley (Case # 18FE009177)

PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Gregory Hayes, Career Criminal Prosecution Unit

Lorinzo Haley was convicted by a jury of first-degree residential robbery.  The jury found true allegations the robbery was committed in concert and that Haley was a principal armed with a firearm.  Haley was also convicted of assault by means of force likely to cause great bodily injury.

On May 8, 2018, Haley and two others broke into a home, went upstairs, and beat the victim who had been sleeping in his bed. The group demanded the victim’s money and ransacked the home. A neighbor saw the three suspects breaking into the victim’s house and called 911. When police arrived, the three suspects tried to escape. During the escape, a gun shot was fired. Haley was found hiding outside near the victim’s home. He was in possession of the victim’s property, including jewelry that had been stolen during the home invasion. One of guns used in the crime was recovered and found to be stolen. The two other suspects were able to escape the scene.

Allegations that Haley has two prior convictions for robbery and attempted robbery will be determined at the sentencing hearing.

Haley faces a maximum sentence of 35 years to life in prison.  Sentencing is set for May 27, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. in Department 29 before the Honorable Geoffrey Goodman.
