Court Case Updates: City of Compton and L.A. County Sheriff

mean-judge-e1409250187636Yesterday, September 23rd, was a busy day in Downtown Los Angeles courtrooms.  We have updates from two cases who are on the Urban Girl’s radar.

First up in Superior Court Division 82 Judge Luis Lavin presided over Jackson v. Godwin, a case that originates out of the City of Compton which alleges voter fraud may have taken place during the election held in April 2013. According to those in attendance, Judge Lanvin questioned the authenticity of the documents presented and didn’t appear to knowledgeable of the Election Codes.  Judge Lavin accepted the documentation and will prepare this response in the coming week(s).

Second, in U.S. District Court Judge Percy Anderson sentenced six current and former L.A. County Sheriff deputies for obstruction of justice stemming from the discovery of a federal informant who had possession of a cell phone in the Men’s Central Jail.  Judge Anderson stated the deputies “failed to do the right thing” which we interpret as giving up others who may have been involved.  None received the maximum jail time of time of 15 years.   The FBI also noted their close, collaborative partnership with the Sheriff’s department.


One Response so far.

    I hope that judge studies his election codes before he makes his decision. I am hoping that Ms. Godwin is not guilty of any crime. Mistakes, perhaps.
