Jordan Latour (defendant) and his nephew robbed a Wells Fargo Bank, using guns to force the bank tellers to turn over the money. Latour was charged and convicted of robbery of the Wells Fargo Bank. The California Penal Code section for robbery, however, stated that “Robbery is the felonious taking of personal property in the possession of another, from his person . . . .” On appeal, the prosecution called for Latour to be acquitted of the robbery charge, because under the statute robbery was an offense against a person and therefore Latour’s conviction for robbery against a bank was erroneous. Latour was acquitted.
