CASE: Carlos Aguirre (Case #10F04114)
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Dinah Mielke, Felony Prosecution Unit
The Honorable Raoul Thorbourne sentenced Carlos Aguirre to 30 years and 4 months in state prison. On February 27, 2017, a jury convicted Aguirre of carjacking and six counts of robbery. The jury also found true the allegation that Aguirre personally used a firearm on all seven counts.
On January 22, 2010, Carlos Aguirre was armed with a gun and wearing a ski mask when he followed an assistant bank manager into her work at the Bank of America on Folsom Boulevard. Aguirre grabbed her from behind with his arm around her neck, and put the gun to her head. He ordered her and other individuals in the bank to the ground. He then ordered two tellers to give him money, which amounted to between $30,000 and $50,000. Customers in the bank testified that they were afraid they were going to die that day. Aguirre demanded car keys from the assistant bank manager while displaying his gun. She complied and Aguirre took his backpack with the money and ran out to her car, where he lost his ski mask. The District Attorney’s Crime Lab obtained a DNA sample from the mask and uploaded it to the DNA database, resulting in a match to Aguirre. Cell phone records put Aguirre’s phone in the area of the bank 11 minutes before the robbery took place, and at approximately the same time the day before.
Aguirre’s prior 1997 strike conviction for assault with a firearm and the allegation that he used the firearm during the commission of a felony or attempted felony was also found true.
