A jury deliberated less than an hour today before convicting the last of four people charged with a 2009 Hollywood Hills home invasion robbery that left a man and his dog wounded.

Deputy District Attorney Amy Ashvanian said the jury found Phillip Anthony Pandy, 33, guilty of all counts, including home invasion robbery, attempted murder, cruelty to an animal, possession of a firearm by a felon and an allegation of personally discharging a firearm causing great bodily injury.

He returns June 28 for sentencing by Judge Bob Bowers Jr. He is facing life in prison.

Pandy and co-defendants Jerry Dean Cunningham, 19, Elizabeth Hernandez, 25, and Uriel Salomon Miranda, 19, all drove to the victim’s home in the 8200 block of Mannix Drive, in Laurel Canyon, shortly after midnight on Dec. 16. 2009.

Hernandez, who worked as a housekeeper until she was fired by the victim, stayed in the car as the get away driver while Miranda served as lookout.

When Pandy and Cunningham entered the residence, they were met by the victim’s male dog, a boxer-bulldog mix. Pandy shot the dog three times in the chest. When the victim heard the shots, he confronted the two robbers and was shot in the throat. After demanding money, the pair made off with more than $65,000 in cash and personal property.

The four were arrested after a short pursuit by LAPD officers. Both the male victim and the dog recovered.

On April 5, Cunningham and Miranda pleaded no contest to one count of first-degree residential robbery and admitted the principal armed and taking more than $65,000 allegations. Judge Lance Ito sentenced each to eight years in state prison.

Hernandez pleaded no contest on April 5 to home invasion robbery and evading an officer and admitted the principal armed allegation. Judge Ito sentenced her to seven years, eight months in state prison.
