Sorry Mr. Marshall most crimes in California are punishable by half for an attempt. But Robbery (Penal code section 211) is an exception to that rule. Attempted second degree robbery is punishable as a straight felony, 16 months 2 or three years. See penal code section 213.


The sentence for second degree robbery is two, three or five years in state prison.

It is considered a violent felony, so he would have to do 85% of any sentence imposed.


Mr. Henderson is correct; Mr. Marshall incorrect. Or maybe he didn't read the question properly. One way or another a new day dawns.
