Police in San Bernardino, California claim they have a suspect in custody following a triple- murder, which occurred Friday morning (May 16) outside a hookah lounge in Southern California.
According to The Riverside Press Enterprise, a Moreno Valley man with supposed gang ties is the prime suspect in this case. In a recent news release, officials said the suspect was allegedly apprehended by San Bernardino Police officers in a local motel. It was unclear by Saturday afternoon (May 17) if the suspect had given information to police or retained an attorney for this case.
Police also claim that around 60 people were present in the parking lot at the time of the shooting. Police additionally claimed that the suspect got into a four-door burgundy sedan after fleeing the scene of the crime. This high-profile case is making news headlines all across Southern California and has even been covered by national news sources, such as The Associated Press.
In the California criminal justice system, there is no more serious situation than being formally charged with one or more homicides. A conviction of murder on a single count can result in a lifetime prison sentence without the possibility of parole. A conviction for multiple murders can land a person on death row. A high-profile criminal complaint, such as the aforementioned case can create challenges in the legal system for a defendant.
Therefore, an experienced defense strategy must be utilized, as it is the right of every person charged with a crime to do so. A seasoned attorney with knowledge of the California criminal laws can do the tough job of investigating and preparing a defense in the event of a major criminal complaint, such as the triple-murder case mentioned above.
