‘Re’sentencing is retraumatizing victims and endangering public safety

By Kathleen Cady

Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón’s focus is not on prosecuting crimes, but on resentencing defendants who were convicted, sentenced and had their appeals denied, sometimes decades ago. Even more disturbing is that the Los Angeles County public defender’s office is writing some of these resentencing motions for prosecutors to file, which deliberately omit or, at best, gloss over adverse controlling case law. All this is happening under the supervision of a deputy public defender “on loan” to the district attorney’s office.

The genesis of this obvious conflict-of-interest came on Dec. 7, 2020, when Gascón issued Special Directive 20-14. It stated “this Office will reevaluate and consider for resentencing people who have already served 15 years in prison.” He simultaneously issued policies that forbid prosecutors to charge gang or gun enhancements, prior strike convictions, or special circumstance allegations in applicable murder prosecutions. Gascón’s directive stated, “the ultimate goal shall be to review and remediate every sentence that does not comport with the new Sentencing, Enhancement and Juvenile Policies. Specifically, this Office commits to an expedited review of the following categories of cases, which are themselves a subset of a universe of 20,000-30,000 cases.”

Gascón’s policy conflicts with the California Constitution. It holds that, “Victims of crime are entitled to finality in their criminal cases. … [T]he ongoing threat that the sentences of criminal wrongdoers will be reduced, prolong the suffering of crime victims for many years after the crimes themselves have been perpetrated.”

Yet, Gascón has used deputy public defenders and loopholes to undermine this constitutional mandate. Resentencing under Gascón’s administration means that convicted defendants have their sentences redone, resulting in a lesser sentence and an earlier release date. Take for instance Proposition 36 resentencing. Prop. 36 was enacted to limit strike prior allegations to violent or serious crimes. However, an interpretation of the law allows judges to reduce the sentence of defendants who were convicted of violent or serious crimes if they were also convicted of nonviolent or serious crimes — so-called “mixed-count” cases. Based on the individualized facts of each case, prosecutors were permitted to argue against this loophole and oppose resentencing, because of the absurd result that a defendant would be given a break because they were convicted of additional offenses. That was the case before Gascón took office.

On taking power, Gascón seized on this loophole to resentence these types of cases. In fact, within days of Gascón being sworn in, Interim Chief Deputy Joseph Iniguez, who had no prior management and minimal felony experience, ordered prosecutors to concede on existing mixed-count cases despite having been provided information as to each defendant’s dangerousness.

One of the cases affected by this blanket policy was People v. Williams. In 2000, Williams was convicted of residential burglary and false imprisonment by violence. Gun allegations and his nine prior residential burglary strike allegations were found true. Williams was also convicted on an unrelated count of receiving stolen property which is how Prop. 36 came into play. Using this Prop. 36 loophole, the defense was able to ask the court to resentence Williams.

The facts of the case are frightening: Williams, a 6’8″ tall man, broke into the victims house and ordered the husband and wife upstairs. He bound their ankles and wrists with torn bed sheets, shoelaces and belts. He gagged them with socks in their mouths. As he pointed the gun at them, he stated, “this might look small to you, but I’m very deadly accurate with it.” Fortunately, the victims managed to escape, retrieve a gun and shoot at the defendant through their bedroom door while on the line with 9-1-1. Williams was convicted and sentenced to 100 years to life. Because of Gascón’s policy, the prosecutor was ordered to concede “dangerousness.” Although the victims appeared and objected, the defendant was resentenced to 18 years, eight months, given credit for time served and ordered to be released from prison on Post Release Community Supervision. On Sept. 20, 2021 it was learned that the defendant was actually released with no supervision or assistance. The victims were not even given the protection of a criminal protective order. They and the community are now endangered by Williams’ release.

On May 5, 2021, Interim Chief Deputy Iniguez sent an email to all top-level management in the district attorney’s office informing them that the point person for all “exceptional conduct” cases was Diana Teran. Public Records Act responses confirm that Teran is “on loan” from the Los Angeles County public defender’s office to the district attorney’s office pursuant to a “mutual agreement” where her salary is paid by the public defender’s office and reimbursed by the district attorney’s office. Her title is “special advisor post-conviction litigation and justice system integrity” for the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Despite being employed by the public defender’s office, Teran has appeared representing the prosecution in at least one case, People v. Carter, in which the defendant was also represented by the Los Angeles County public defender’s office.

In 2006, just a few years after her federal bank robbery conviction, Kimberly Carter shot and killed her boyfriend, Harry Phillips. She pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter. She also admitted that she used a firearm in the commission of the crime and had a prior strike conviction from 2002 for the bank robbery. She was sentenced to 27 years in prison. In 2020, the court denied a motion to resentence the defendant. On July 15, 2021, Teran filed a motion to resentence the defendant. The case is next in court on Nov. 8, 2021, for a resentencing hearing.

Penal Code Section 1170(d) provides statutory authority for resentencing prisoners based upon exceptional conduct. These motions, however, can only be made by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation or the prosecutor. The law does not allow defense attorneys to make the motion. Yet, defense attorneys are now drafting motions for prosecutors to file on their behalf.

Defendant Miguel Michael Huerta is one such inmate who was referred for resentencing based upon “exceptional conduct.” Huerta is represented by the public defender’s office. The proposed reconsideration motion was drafted by David Marsh, a deputy public defender, for the assigned prosecutor, Mindy Paige, to file. Marsh even incorrectly listed Paige’s email as being with the Los Angeles County public defender’s office. People v. Huerta, XCN BA168888.
There are many other examples of resentencing under Prop. 36 and exceptional conduct subject to Gascón’s blanket policy which are violating victims’ rights and endangering community safety.

Governor Gavin Newsom’s 2021-2022 budget allocated money for a Resentencing Pilot Program giving financial incentives to district attorneys’ offices to remedy unjust sentences. While this may be justified in individual cases, Gascón’s blanket policy seems to be directing that prosecutors request resentencing for anyone who has already served 15 years in prison. Of course, having a supervisor who is employed by the public defender’s office and other deputy public defenders draft motions for prosecutors to file will most certainly help minimize the workload of prosecutors in the district attorney office’s Resentencing Unit.

The public deserves to have an elected prosecutor who upholds his oath to follow the laws and protect community safety. Gascón, however, is expanding his effort to resentence 20,000-30,000 convicted felons who have already served 15 years in prison, releasing dangerous criminals, and endangering our communities.

Kathy Cady began her career as a prosecutor in 1989 and retired in 2019. She is one of several former prosecutors who are providing pro bono assistance to crime victims in response to Gascón’s policies.

Lawsuit Seeking Injunction Filed Against Los Angeles District Attorney

Los Angeles, October 14, 2021 – The Association of Deputy District Attorneys for Los Angeles County (ADDA) is seeking an injunction in Superior Court to prevent District Attorney George Gascon from continuing to violate the law by again appointing ineligible political supporters to civil service protected positions in the District Attorney’s Office.  This action is necessary to preserve the status quo while the Civil Service Commission hears the ADDA appeals of prior ineligible political appointments by the District Attorney.

The Los Angeles County Charter and civil service protections were designed to ensure good government by protecting independent institutions from political cronyism. However, these protections are not self-executing. The lawsuit seeks to stop the sitting district attorney, George Gascón from filling the civil service ranks with political loyalists and financial supporters.

The Los Angeles County Charter establishes a Civil Service System which requires employees to be selected and advanced for their ability, knowledge and skill, prohibits discrimination based on political affiliation, and protects employees against coercion for political purposes. In violation of the charter, the District Attorney hired unqualified political supporters from the Public Defender’s Office and appointed them to Deputy District Attorney positions instead of selecting qualified career prosecutors on the active eligible lists for those positions.

The ADDA appeal of the ineligible political appointments is pending before the Civil Service Commission, which voted unanimously on July 21, 2021, to hear that appeal.  Upon learning the District Attorney is planning to make additional appointments of ineligible political supporters, it is necessary for a Court to enjoin any such appointments until the Civil Service Commission hearings are completed.

Prosecutors are obligated to ethically enforce the law and ensure public safety.  To do so they must engage in decision making that is free from the threat of political retaliation or the promise of political reward.  The ADDA is seeking court intervention because of the continued abuse of the current administration in violating important institutional safeguards designed to insulate the effective administration of justice from political influence.

About The ADDA The Association of Deputy District Attorneys (ADDA) is the collective bargaining agent and represents over 800 Deputy District Attorneys who work for the County of Los Angeles.

The Signal: Prosecutors decry witness subpoena rule

Prosecutors are expressing frustration at an order from District Attorney George Gascón that prohibits them from compelling witnesses to testify in criminal trials.

The order, which was not included in Gascón’s publicly issued directives when he took office in December, was conveyed to deputy district attorneys via a private online meeting and email, according to prosecutors and records obtained by The Signal. In his directives published for public view in December, Gascón had prohibited “body attachment” subpoenas for crime victims, but the directive regarding witnesses was not made public.

Now, with criminal trials ramping back up and L.A. County’s murder rate on the rise, several deputy D.A.’s are saying the ban on what are known as body attachment subpoenas for witnesses is leaving their hands tied and allowing violent criminals to go free.

About three times a day on average — now that trials have resumed — a case is dismissed because the prosecutor can’t get a witness to appear for testimony, according to one Los Angeles County preliminary hearing judge who spoke with The Signal on the condition of anonymity.

“That’s just in one courtroom,” the judge added. “So, the number is way larger countywide.”
