Sentencing for Jared Hale Lynch Silvestri, October 30

Jared Hale Lynch Silvestri is charged with charged with one count each of murder, driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage causing injury and driving with a 0.08 percent blood-alcohol content causing injury.

Prosecutors and the California Highway Patrol said Silvestri crashed his VW Jetta full-speed into a Chrysler pulled over to the shoulder of the freeway near Stadium Way on November 5, 2016, causing the death of an infant and injuries to the baby’s grandmother and a nine-year-old girl.

Silvestri is being held in lieu of $2.1 million bail. He could face up to 25 years to life in state prison.

Deputy District Attorney Casey Jarvis is prosecuting.

Opening Statements for Albert Ahmad Clark, October 30

Albert Ahmad Clark is charged with murder for the alleged shooting death of Leroy Galloway on February 27, 1988. Clark was arrested that year but was released due to the limitations of forensic science at that time; there was insufficient evidence to charge him with homicide.

In 2013, family members of the victim contacted the Pasadena Police Department and requested a review of the case. An extensive examination of the case files identified items of evidence that were suitable for modern forensic analysis.

The Los Angeles County Crime Lab ultimately implicated Albert Clark in the crime. He was arrested on December 7, 2015, and remains in custody at the Los Angeles County Jail with bail set at $2 million.

Deputy District Attorney Ryan Erlich is prosecuting.

Readiness Hearing for Anthony Seth McDaniel, November 2

Anthony Seth McDaniel is charged with two felony counts of kidnapping to commit oral copulation, after allegedly kidnapping two women on April 30, 2016 for the purpose of sexually assaulting them while he was wearing a court-ordered ankle monitor.

The charges included allegations that he caused great bodily injury to one of the victims and that he had a previous conviction in 2008 of assault with intent to commit a sexual assault.

McDaniel allegedly invited two women to get into his truck to give them a ride. Instead, he reportedly took the women to a different location in an attempt to sexually assault them. One of the women jumped from the moving truck and suffered a fractured ankle. The other was allegedly threatened with a gun but managed to escape when the suspect allegedly pushed her out of the vehicle after a collision on the freeway.

McDaniel was being held on $2 million bail. On May 20, 2016, he pleaded not guilty to the charges.

If convicted as charged, he could face two life terms in state prison.
