Question Was there a change to second degree robbery in California??

Does anyone know anything about a change with second degree robbery not being a crime of violence anymore. My lo was trying to tell me about it today. He told me to look up something about the ninth circuit and robbery. I actually found something about it but don’t understand it of course. Just thought I’d ask maybe someone on here knows.

You're welcome to post a link to what you've found so we can take a look at it

In California's Penal Code, I've found the following:

Quote:
(c) For the purpose of this section, “violent felony” shall mean any of the following:

(9) Any robbery.

I "believe" robbery or at least some forms of robbery are considered non-violent under Federal law. Ninth circuit is Western district Federal court of appeal and wouldn't have jurisdiction over state law.

Robbery is violent under California state law. I suspect the guys are hearing of some recent case in California based Federal appeals court and conflating it with State law.
