Fox News: LA County sheriff rips liberal DA for releasing convicted killer
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department harshly criticized a deputy district attorney after she allowed a convicted murderer to be released.
The Los Angeles Daily News reported that L.A. County Deputy District Attorney Alisa Blair did not present evidence at a hearing last week meant to determine if Andrew Cachu should serve his full sentence for killing Louis Amela, 41, in March 2015.
Cachu killed Amela two months before Cachu’s 18th birthday, which makes him eligible for a retroactive transfer hearing to determine if his case should remain in the juvenile court system or be transferred to adult court. Under California law, offenders convicted as juveniles must be released by the age of 25.
