Teen given rehab for robbing ex’s mom with machete
June 07, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

A teenager who lured his ex-girlfriend from her Redwood City home so that two accomplices could rob her mother using a machete and handgun was sentenced to a year in a drug rehabilitation program by a judge who told him he was smart and could be college-bound.

Prosecutors sought six years in prison for Cristian Joshua Estrada, 18, but Judge Jonathan Karesh opted for a year in jail which is immediately modifiable to the Jericho Drug Treatment Program. Estrada agreed to waive any credit he’s earned toward the term while in custody on $250,000.

Karesh also placed Estrada on five years supervised probation.

Estrada pleaded no contest in February to felony home invasion robbery for his role in the July 3, 2013, incident. That afternoon, Estrada allegedly left the Lanyard Drive home with the daughter so Ceballos and another male suspect could break in through the bedroom window. Ceballos allegedly had a machete and the other a handgun when they encountered the mother and asked her repeatedly, “Where’s the gold?”

After removing her jewelry and taking a jewelry box from another room, the teens took the crying woman to the garage and ordered her to open a safe. When her nerves prevented her from doing so, the pair left and, a few minutes later, Estrada and the girl returned. Estrada’s cellphone had messages implicating Ceballos and Ceballos’ home and car reportedly contained the stolen property and machete.

Prosecutors did not believe the daughter was involved in the crime.

Ceballos also pleaded no contest in February and received three years prison.
