2 to Be Sentenced for Robbery Spree

Police officers wounded one of the convicted robbers with gunfire.

A Pacoima gang member wounded in North Hollywood last year in a shootout with undercover Glendale police detectives is set to be sentenced Friday for an armed robbery spree in the San Fernando Valley between November 2010 and June 2011.

David Cesar Santos, 20, was convicted by a Van Nuys Superior Court jury last month of six counts of second-degree robbery and one count each of assault on a peace officer and attempted second-degree robbery. Jurors also found true gang and gun allegations.

Also set to be sentenced today is co-defendant Christopher Rosalio Morales, 23, who pleaded no contest to seven counts of second-degree robbery and one count of attempted second-degree robbery.

Santos and Morales face up to 45 years in state prison when they appear before Judge Martin Herscovitz for sentencing this morning.

The two were arrested June 21, 2011, after Glendale police detectives conducting a surveillance operation in North Hollywood witnessed an armed robbery at Sylvan Street and Colfax Avenue, authorities said. They jumped in a Chrysler PT Cruiser after spotting the detectives, and Santos was wounded when he rammed the vehicle into a detective's car, drawing police gunfire.

The state railway, Deutsche Bahn, operates http://www.outletcoachstoday.com what it calls - using the English that http://www.coachoutletod.com infuriates language purists - a Call a Bike scheme. http://www.coachs-outletcar.com There is a bank of red bikes outside the station. On the bike, http://www.coachoutletdp.com there's a telephone number which you call, and http://www.coachoutletwo.com the voice at the other end gives you a code to http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com unlock the bike.When you've finished, you lock it http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net to something fixed and call the number with a code and somebody picks it up. http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org You will be charged eight cents a minute.But most of us have our own bikes. We http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net do not wear helmets. It is foolish, but we don't. I always mean to - but I http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com don't. I realise that the brain is man's second favourite organ - but I still http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com leave my helmet behind.There is an argument now that if cities insist on http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com helmets for bike-hire schemes, then people simply don't ride bikes. And if http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org people don't ride bikes, then they're less fit and that means that more of them http://www.coachoutletrf.com die of heart-attacks.On this argument, insisting on helmets raises the overall death.
