Aspiring Professional Poker Player gets Dealt 8 Years in Prison for Robbing Casino Customers

A Paramount man was convicted, on October 31, of four counts of second degree robbery and one count of attempted second degree robbery after he followed home customers from local casinos and robbed them.

According to Deputy District Attorney Brian Kang, Dominick Roberson followed home and robbed three women from the Hawaiian Gardens casino. A 50 year old woman from Long beach was robbed of $1000 in cash and her purse. A 41 year old woman of Westminster was robbed of $3100 in cash and her purse. And a 51 year old woman of La Puente was robbed of $2000. He also followed home a man from the same casino, confronting him in his driveway, but the man was able to get away.

Roberson reportedly also followed another woman from the Hollywood park casino to her home in Torrance, robbing her of at least $6000 in cash.

The District Attorney described Roberson as an aspiring professional poker player who used one of the victim’s money to gamble with at a casino. He was sentenced on Wednesday to 8 years and 8 months in state prison.
