Gang Members Attack Graffiti Victim

Law Offices of William W. Bruzzo

Last July two men and a 17 year old were arrested in connection with stabbing and beating a man. Last Friday Nicolas Duran, Alejandro Duran and 17 year old Manola Mauricio pled guilty to one count of aggravated assault(Penal Code Section 245(a)(1), one count of street terrorism (Penal Code Section 186.22) and a sentencing enhancement for criminal street gang activity. Both counts were felonies and Mauricio was prosecuted as an adult according to the Orange County register. The police report revealed that the victim noticed three adults writing graffiti on a wall and told them to stop. Those same three adults and two others on bikes followed the victim and beat him. Mauricio received credit for time served of 200 days and was placed on probation. The D.A. objected to all three defendants’ sentences, believing that either based on their criminal records or the nature of the incident each should do more time.
