People v. Hays

California Courts of Appeal
195 Cal. Rptr. 252 (1983)


Facts

Marsha Pederson was a bookkeeper for a drug store. Pederson was working in her second-floor office where the store’s safes were kept when Charles Lee Hays (defendant) crashed down through the acoustic tiles in the ceiling above her. His face was covered, and he was carrying a sawed-off rifle. Pederson screamed and fled, scared and threatened by the armed intrusion. Property from the office was later recovered from Hays’s father and accomplice, Mark Hays. Charles Lee Hays was charged and convicted of robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. Hays appealed, alleging that the evidence was insufficient to support the crime of robbery.
