Transient pleads guilty to violent robbery in Placentia – Orange County Register

A 45-year-old transient pleaded guilty Friday and was immediately sentenced to six years in prison for a violent robbery and car theft in Placentia, but he is being released for spending that time behind bars awaiting trial.

Michael Anthony Davis Jr. pleaded guilty to robbery, auto theft, auto larceny, false imprisonment and battery with serious injuries, all felonies. As part of the plea he accepted from Orange County Superior Court Judge Scott Steiner, penalty enhancements for personal use of a deadly weapon were dismissed.

Davis was originally charged with attempted murder with an aggravation of attempted first-degree murder that would have made him face a life sentence, but those crimes were dismissed on October 17.

According to court records, on May 13, 2017, Davis assaulted an employee at a self-storage store at 585 Porter Way in Placentia.

The victim told police someone hit him on the back of the head and he passed out, according to court records. His wallet, keys and money were stolen.

The victim said that when he came to, he was handcuffed, his mouth taped shut and a plastic bag placed over his head, police said. When he extricated himself and the summoned police officers arrived just before 9 p.m. and saw that he had dried blood on his face, he was out of breath and limping to walk, according to court records.

Davis has been credited with 2,380 days in prison, so he will be released. Transient pleads guilty to violent robbery in Placentia – Orange County Register
