  • CA Law Prevents Kidnapper’s Murder Conviction
    by Michael Rushford

    California’s Third District Court of Appeal has unanimously overturned the first degree murder conviction of a Sacramento man whose wife jumped from his pickup and died during his attempt to kidnap her.   The court’s ruling held that because the victim jumped from her husband’s truck while trying to escape him, under a recently enacted state law, he could not be held responsible for her death.   In 2018, the state legislature passed, and Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 1437 into law.  As reported by Metropolitan News Enterprise, the measure eviscerated the state’s felony murder rule, which had for decades, allowed accomplices to a felony such as kidnapping to be charged with murder if someone died during the commission of the crime.  Under SB 1437, only the actual killer; someone who aided, participated in or solicited the murder; or was a major participant in the felony who acted with reckless indifference to human life, could be convicted of the murder. The defendant, Jerry Vang, has a history of beating his girlfriends going back to 2002.  While most of the incidents were not reported to police, in 2007 he was convicted of assault likely to result in great bodily injury.  In 2011, police officers had to break down his door to rescue a girlfriend Vang had tied up and was beating with a knife sharpener.  He was convicted of domestic violence for that assault.  Yet under California’s weak sentencing “reforms” Vang remained free in the community to attack additional women. In the very early morning hours of February 3, 2017 a witness observed Vang’s pickup truck traveling down a four-lane thoroughfare at about 45 miles per hour.  As the truck passed he heard crying inside the truck, then saw the passenger door open and a woman fall out, hitting her head on the pavement.  The truck stopped and Vang got out, swearing at the woman as he tried to drag her back to his truck.  He eventually gave up and got back into the truck and started it, apparently intending to drive away when the police arrived.  The woman died hours later from her injuries. At trial, multiple witnesses testified about Vang’s brutality, including putting a gun to his wife’s head and threatening to kill her and their infant child.  The jury also heard testimony about the multiple times his wife had run to relatives homes with the baby to escape Vang’s violence.  Jurors also learned of Vang’s statement to police about forcing his wife’s car off the road and ordering her into his truck on the night she died. Thanks to SB 1437, dozens of accessories to murder have avoided responsibility for their crimes and scores more have petitioned to have their convictions and sentences reduced.   People v. Vang provides an example of the injustice caused by this law.   The post CA Law Prevents Kidnapper’s Murder Conviction appeared first on Crime & Consequences.

  • New York Takes Bold Action to Fight Crime
    by Michael Rushford

    With crime and violence raging across the state of New York, including cities outside of the Big Apple like Albany and Rodchester, and with fatal fentanyl overdoses at epidemic levels, the state legislature it taking action.  Maydoon Khan of the Associated Press reports that Governor Kathy Hochul signed a new law this week to strike the word “inmate” from state law and replace it with “incarcerated person” in order to remove the stigma of serving time in prison or jail for criminal behavior.  The bill’s sponsor, Bronx Democrat Senator Gustavo Rivera, told reporters, “This is another concrete step our state is taking to make our criminal justice system one that focuses on rehabilitation, rather than relying solely on punishment.”  I bet millions of New Yorkers already feel safer because of this new law.  A linguistics professor at MIT compared calling a person in prison an inmate with calling an African American born into slavery a slave.  By changing the words “you help people better understand who they are and how they got to be where they are,” he said. The professor may have missed an important distinction between slaves and inmates.  Inmates are people who choose to commit crimes and are arrested, tried and incarcerated because of that choice.  Inmates also prey upon innocent victims. It is also questionable that substituting “incarcerated person” for “inmate” will actually change anybody’s perception about someone serving time in prison or jail for committing crimes.   To truly remove the stigma, the state needs to take another “concrete step” and purge the word criminal from state law.  Perhaps “victim of society” could be the replacement. Meanwhile, folks in Albany, where the state legislature meets, are four times more likely to be murdered than in New York City and  two-and-one-third times more likely to be victims of violent crime.   Thankfully, Governor Hochul cleared up any question about the state’s priorities by telling us that,  “By treating all New Yorkers with dignity and respect, we can improve public safety while ensuring New Yorkers have a fair shot at a second chance.” The state’s zero bail law and weak sentencing are already providing habitual criminals which multiple second chances.  Some criminals in NYC have reportedly be arrested and released over fifty times.  I’m not sure that the dignity-enhancing change to calling criminals “incarcerated persons” will have much of an impact on public safety.
