Trial ordered for alleged ‘Be Cool Bandit’

COMMENTARY BY CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER SAM SPITAL AND ASSOCIATES:

‎”KFMB Channel 8 TV online edition updated its post on October 25, 2012 regarding what has been described as the ‘Be Cool Bandit’ who was charged with ten (10) separate robberies of gas stations and convenience stores, displaying a semi-automatic weapon and after his Preliminary Hearing now must face trial on these charges .
The defendant was reported to have a lengthy criminal history, including a previous robbery conviction; he was given the ‘Be Cool Bandit’ nickname because he told his victims ‘Just be cool, be cool.’ Several items recovered after his arrest including fingerprints and DNA evidence from the scenes of the crimes were part of the prosecution case. The article contained no reference to the attorney for, or any interview or statement made on behalf of, the defendant. Lacking anything further, it is mere speculation as to what defense and/or mitigation might be presented by criminal defense counsel. Without more, the defendant faces up to 35 years in prison if found guilty.”
