Penal Code 422 PC is considered a serious crime that can expose a convicted defendant to the provisions of the California’s three-strikes law and result in a significant state prison sentence.
AS to Penal Code 646:
(a) Any person who willfully, maliciously, and repeatedly follows or willfully and maliciously harasses another person and who makes a credible threat with the intent to place that person in reasonable fear for his or her safety, or the safety of his or her immediate family is guilty of the crime of stalking, punishable by imprisonment in a county jail for not more than one year, or by a fine of not more than one thousand dollars ($1,000), or by both that fine and imprisonment, or by imprisonment in the state prison.
(b) Any person who violates subdivision (a) when there is a temporary restraining order, injunction, or any other court order in effect prohibiting the behavior described in subdivision (a) against the same party, shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or four years.
(c) (1) Every person who, after having been convicted of a felony under Section 273.5, 273.6, or 422, commits a violation of subdivision (a) shall be punished by imprisonment in a county jail for not more than one year, or by a fine of not more than one thousand dollars ($1,000), or by both that fine and imprisonment, or by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or five years.
So – it appears that the erstwhile governor candidate either got busted a second time for stalking Deanna Lorraine OR there is a new victim. Omar Navarro was arrested for 11 felonies and pled guilty to two. 422 is criminal threats and 646(b) is violating a restraining order. Nice job Omar.
Omar should write George Gascon a thank you letter as he appears to have only gotten 90 days in jail for this, yet he will serve about 15 of them. The LA County website says his projected release date is 4-4-2021 and he was sentenced on 3-17-2021.
