Meet Today's Stupid Orange County Robber: Joel Boyd
Costa Mesa's Joel Boyd and Chad Watts robbed an Orange County Cash Plus business and got away with more than $26,600 until FBI agents apprehended them and two, 2005 juries rendered guilty verdicts.
Watts, now 31, won a 121-month trip to a federal prison in southeastern Arizona, where he remains today.
But Boyd refuses to go away quietly.
Upshot: Boyd, 36, will continue to serve his whopping 320-month punishment at a federal prison in Allenwood, PA. His projected release date is in 2032.
Both indigent robbers have been ordered to pay restitution to Cash Plus.
