Teen Who Mowed Down Mom and Infant Sentenced to “Juvenile Probation Camp” Thanks to Marxist Los Angeles DA George Gascon
A teen who plowed over a mother and her 8-month-old infant was sentenced to “juvenile probation camp” thanks to Marxist Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon.
Venice, California – In August 2021, a driver, who was 16 at the time, plowed over a mother and her infant.
The mother, identified as “Rachel,” was pushing her infant in a stroller down an alleyway when the teen sped up in a stolen vehicle and ran over her.
“I thought those were the last moments of our lives; we were dead,” the mother, who asked to be identified only as Rachel, wrote in a victim’s impact statement. “That feeling, along with the memory of a car accelerating directly into us, will haunt me forever.”
A good Samaritan rammed the stolen vehicle with his pickup truck.
The crime was caught on surveillance videos.
Despite the crime being caught on video with multiple witnesses present, Gascon’s office gave the teen the lightest possible sentence.
The victim called the attack attempted murder and lashed out at Gascon in a statement.
“I was also told that his record would be wiped clean when he turns 18,” Rachel said in a statement according to Fox News. “How on earth can that be? He tried to murder two innocent pedestrians. Murder. And we have video evidence. My child would be dead if I hadn’t been there to protect him.”
“George Gascon doesn’t value my life or the life of my child, or any other victim out there and would rather reward the monsters like [the juvenile suspect] by demonstrating to them that their actions have no consequences,” Rachel continued. “DA Gascon is telling him and every other thug in LA County that it doesn’t matter if you try to murder people. Why are Gascon’s policies prioritizing the livelihood of rotten monsters when my child, my baby, who is incapable of protecting himself, is left to fend for himself, and is essentially being told his life doesn’t matter?”
Fox News reported:
A California teen convicted of plowing a car into a mother and her 8-month-old son will spend just five months in a diversionary program thanks to Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon, according to the woman who survived the crash.
Despite shocking surveillance video of the Aug. 6, 2021, incident, numerous eyewitnesses and initial felony charges, the teen will serve his sentence at a “juvenile probation camp,” an alternative sentence less severe than juvenile detention.
Gascon’s office called the final sentence of five to seven months in youth camp “an appropriate resolution.”
“Fortunately, the baby was uninjured, and the mother received a laceration to her elbow,” his office told Fox News Digital Friday. “The Sheriff’s Department agreed with the felony charges that were filed. At arraignment, the minor admitted two felony counts of assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury and one felony count of hit-and-run. The Probation Department recommended, and the court sentenced the minor to a youth camp for five to seven months, an appropriate resolution.”
Juvenile justice is meant to “rehabilitate young people,” the statement continued.
