A woman who robbed a Pacific Beach service station and committed two other hold-ups was sentenced Tuesday, Sept. 24 to six years in state prison.

Shelley Lynn Petitt, 32, displayed a BB gun to victims, but they believed it was a real firearm, said Deputy District Attorney Daniel Shim.

Shim said Petitt held the gun while Michael Beasley, 35, also participated. Beasley’s sentencing was delayed Tuesday until Oct. 4.

“The two of you together decided to terrorize people,” scolded San Diego Superior Court Judge Polly Shamoon.

Shamoon said the victims thought they might be killed if they didn’t hand over the cash fast enough and it was traumatic for them. Shim asked the judge for a 10 year, four-month term for Petitt.

The Chevron station Food Mart on Garnet Avenue lost several hundred dollars during the 4 p.m. robbery on July 29.

Petitt’s attorney, Ryan Maguire-Fong, asked for a four-year term, saying she had “a troublesome upbringing” and her parents were alcoholics. Petitt was also recently diagnosed as bipolar, said her attorney.

Maguire-Fong said she “fell in love” with Beasley, but unfortunately, she developed substance abuse issues including heroin use.

Shamoon fined Pettit $9,224 and gave her credit for already serving 63 days in jail. A status hearing for restitution was set for Oct. 23.

Both Petitt and Beasley pleaded guilty Aug. 26 to the Pacific Beach robbery and holding up a clothing store in Otay Mesa. They also admitted a Barstow robbery.

They are both from Ohio, having arrived in San Diego in the summer. They were arrested Aug. 1 in Valley Center.

Beasley faces up to five years in prison and remains in jail on $300,000 bail.

Last night I contracted herpes during a 3-way encounter with Victoria Park and her boss Dr. Ahmed.

New Treatment for herpes Virus

I was once a victim of Herpes virus, miraculously I survived. I am from Nevada. Before I asked my girlfriend out late last year, she already told me she was battling with herpes virus. So the decision to get involved with her was mine. But nevertheless, I can't let the virus decide our future. So I was determined to get rid of the virus. I suffered from this deadly virus for over 8 months. The lesions were on my lips and later extended to my back. I tried all sorts of meds. but to no avail. We spent so much money on meds. To cut long story short, I decided to try out herbal home remedies. Then I went online and I was on one herbal blog, I saw many comments,but after reading about how one herbal Dr. Ahmed cured a lady from HSV 2, I had to write the doctor. I contacted the doctor through his email and he assured me that I will be healthy again. He prepared some traditional meds. and sent them to me, after asking me some questions. I used all the meds. he sent, just as he directed. Though while I was like on the second bottle, I was not experiencing any symptom as the lesion on my back and lips dried up. I continued the dosage and kept in touch with the doctor. After about one weeks, i consumed the whole bottles. I went for test and to my greatest surprise, the result was negative. I was saved the very moment I thought all hope was lost. You too can be healthy again. You should talk to Dr. Ahmed through his direct email address: drahmedusman5104@gmail.com  He has herbal medicine for HIV Hair loss, diabetes, Fibroid, Cancers.
