Here’s another example of a brazen criminal willing to do almost anything, crossing over any moral lines of judgement whatsoever, to get what they want. This Man was sentenced for armed robbery of day-care provider holding baby. He not only marches into a daycare center to commit robber but he demands money from a woman caring for six children at gunpoint! Unbelievable. Do you think the daycare center is going to be thinking about improving their security systems now? I certainly hope so and I’d be more than happy to provide them with some guidance. But that’s not the point. What’s critical to know is that those that commit crimes like this do not share the same moral values as the majority. Just because you think that no one would dare to do such a thing at a daycare center doesn’t mean the criminally minded don’t see it as an easy target. What are your thoughts on this? Please share them below.
A Stanton man convicted of his third strike for the armed robbery of an Irvine in-home day-care provider was sentenced Thursday to 22 years in state prison.
Hung Trong Do, 34, pleaded guilty in May to robbing a woman at gunpoint while she was caring for six children, according to the Orange County district attorney’s office.
Do pleaded guilty to felony first-degree robbery, first-degree residential burglary, possession of a firearm by a felon and two counts of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, the Daily Pilot reported.
He also admitted to a sentencing enhancement for personal use of a firearm.
Do broke into the victim’s home while she was sitting on the couch feeding a baby with five other children in the room about noon June 3, 2009.
Do demanded money from the woman as he pointed his loaded .40-caliber semiautomatic gun at her head and forced her into another room with the baby still in her arms.
The woman gave him $100 out of her purse before her husband came home and began arguing with Do. This gave the woman a chance to call 911.
Do fled, but Irvine police found him loitering in a nearby apartment complex and a police dog found the gun in nearby bushes.
Do has two previous strike convictions for a 1996 attempted murder and a 2008 residential burglary. He was also convicted in 2005 for possession of a firearm.
