Baldwin Park man convicted of El Monte robbery, but acquitted of other charges, sentenced

POMONA — A Baldwin Park man convicted of an El Monte robbery but acquitted of other charges including kidnapping and sexual assault was sentenced Wednesday to a year in jail, authorities said.
Armando Martinez, 21, received a sentence of 365 days in jail and five years of probation for the Oct. 13, 2011, robbery, Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons said.
He robbed a woman of a cell phone as she was in a car with him, according to investigators.
Martinez was also originally charged with charges including kidnapping, sexual assault by restraint dissuading a witness and assault with intent to commit a felony after police alleged he forced the woman into his car at gunpoint before exposing and touching himself.
But the Pomona Superior Court jury found him not guilty of all but the second-degree robbery charge when they reached a verdict in his case July 17, Gibbons said.
