Robber who smashed into spa gets time served
July 22, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal staff report

Alan Stinson

A man found outside a Redwood City spa with hundreds of bloodied bills from having shattered the glass doors with his body pleaded no contest Monday to felony commercial burglary in return for time served.

Alan Patrick Stinson, 32, of San Jose, reportedly told arresting sheriff’s deputies who found him April 21 that he’d been to the Woodside Spa on the 1500 block of Woodside Road “lots of times” for sexual services and added “I blame this all on the drugs and alcohol,” according to prosecutors.

Stinson appeared in court Monday to set a new preliminary hearing date but instead opted to settle the case for 102 days jail with credit of the same. He must also spend three years on supervised probation and pay the victim $698.88.

After changing his plea, Judge Donal Ayoob also agreed to immediately reduce the charge to a misdemeanor.

Security cameras at the Woodside Spa captured Stinson smashing through the glass with this shoulders and entering. Authorities found blood on the interior walls of the spa and $735 missing from the office. Stinson, whose own face and hands were bloodied, was standing near the doors with the soiled money in his possession, according to prosecutors.

As Stinson entered the spa, an employee slept upstairs.
