Orange County Criminal Law
Testimonials of clients of Orange County Criminal Attorney Will Bruzzo who were charged with robbery.
I was charged with Robbery, Penal Code Section 211/212.5(c) for alleging taking a phone from someone.
I was facing up to 5 years in prison for this offense. I hired attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me. Mr. Bruzzo argued with the District Attorney that the facts of the case did not amount to a robbery. When the District Attorney did not listen, Mr. Bruzzo set the matter for a Preliminary Hearing.
After the Police Officers testified at the hearing and Mr. Bruzzo cross-examined them, he argued that the case should be dismissed because I did not have the intent to rob the victim.
The Judge agreed with Mr. Bruzzo and case was DISMISSED!
This is my second time hiring Mr. Bruzzo and I would enthusiastically recommend him for any Penal Code Section 211/212.5(c) case.
I took items from a store without paying for them. The Loss Prevention people at the store confronted me at the exit of the store. They claimed that I fought with them and did not abandon the stolen property.
As a result I was charged with two counts of felony Robbery (Penal Code Section 211), one for each Loss Prevention Officer I allegedly fought with. I was also charged with being under the influence of a controlled substance (Health and Safety Code Section 11550) and False Identifying Information to a Peace Officer (Penal Code Section 148.9) and keeping lost property without permission (Penal Code Section 485). I was looking at a maximum of about 7 years in prison for these offenses.
I hired Attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me. Mr. Bruzzo was recommend by another lawyer who is also a friend. Mr. Bruzzo demanded certain items from the prosecution to include a video tape of the alleged struggle between me and the loss prevention people. When the Prosecution said the video was “lost”, Mr. Bruzzo threatened to file a special motion to dismiss the matter.
In the end, the Robbery Charges [Penal Code Section 211], the Under the Influence Charge [Health and Safety Code Section 11550], the False Identification to a Peace Officer [Penal Code Section 148.9] were all DISMISSED.
I pled guilty to misdemeanor Petty Theft, Misdemeanor Battery Charges and Misdemeanor Keeping Lost property, with credit for time served [8 days].
I am very happy with this result and grateful.
I was charged with Penal Code Section 211 [robbery], a felony. [Robbery in this case was taking items from a store without paying for them by force or fear; this carries a maximum sentence of 5 years in prison] Mr. Bruzzo got this charge dismissed and instead I pleaded to a misdemeanor disturbing the peaces [Penal Code Section 415] and an infraction [Penal Code Section 490.1]. I was given no probation and no jail time. Mr. Bruzzo’s vast experience got me a favorable result in my case.
