CASE: Andrew Lane (Case #21FE017043)

PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Adriana Garcia, Felony Trial Unit

Andrew Lane was convicted by a jury of assault with a semi-automatic firearm, two counts of attempted first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of ammunition by a convicted felon. The jury also found true allegations that Lane used a semiautomatic firearm and that he caused great bodily injury.

On October 3, 2021, Andrew Lane showed up at the victim’s front door demanding a food stamp card. Lane later returned to the residence demanding money and walked inside of the home, where he began waving a handgun. Lane then turned to the victim and pistol whipped him, causing the handgun to discharge and the victim was shot in the neck. After shooting the victim, Lane continued to demand money before fleeing the scene. The victim survived the gunshot wound.

An allegation that Lane has a prior 2007 strike conviction for battery personally inflicting serious bodily injury will be determined at the sentencing hearing.

Lane faces a maximum potential sentence of 45 years and 8 months in prison.  Sentencing is set for October 28, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. in Department 42 before the Honorable Allen Sumner.
