Man taken into custody in relation to the killing of Mario Rodriguez, 40
Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon’s policy aided the release of a man who was previously serving a life prison sentence for a double murder.
Victor Bibiano, 30, served eight years out of a life sentence because Gascon’s office declined to transfer the case from juvenile to adult court.
In May, the man was taken into custody in relation to the killing of Mario Rodriguez, 40.
When Bibiano was 17, he and two other people were convicted in relation to the killing of two gang members in Pacoima as well as wounding a third in 2009.
According to the report, Bibiano was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for shooting a firearm at an inhabited dwelling, attempted murder, and a special-circumstance double murder.
He was later released in 2021.
As Fox News reported:
Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon on Tuesday defended his policies amid criticism following reports that the deceased suspect accused of killing two El Monte, California, police officers, was out on probation.
Earlier this year, Gascón backed off from some of his controversial policies amid growing public outcry about lenient sentences, rising crime, and a newly-launched effort to force a recall election.
As Neon Nettle reported:
In 2020, Gascón was elected with help of George Soros’s millions.Soros has backed radical prosecutors across the country as Democrats pursue an agenda of “criminal justice reform.”
A massive crime wave overwhelmed many Democrat-run cities and is becoming a major political issue.
As Neon Nettle reported last year, Gascón faced backlash for releasing a convicted murderer just six years in what was meant to be a 50-year sentence.
Democrats have refused to denounce prosecutors like Gascón, endorsed by the state’s political establishment.
L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti even switched his endorsement from incumbent Jackie Lacey, the first black woman to hold the job of L.A. District Attorney, to Gascón after Black Lives Matter targeted Lacey and Soros gave millions to Gascón’s campaign.
A second recall campaign was approved to begin gathering signatures last month after a previous effort fell short last year.
