DATE: November 20, 2015
CASE: Sam Perez
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Molly Steber, Gangs & Hate Crimes Unit
The Honorable James McFetridge sentenced 20-year-old Sam Perez to 32 years to life plus 10 years in prison. On August 20, 2015, a jury convicted Perez of attempted murder. The jury also found true a gang enhancement and allegations he committed the crime with premeditation and deliberation, and personally discharged a firearm causing great bodily injury.
On February 10, 2014, Perez, his brother, and two older Sureños gang members walked to Mack and Center Parkway where they got into a verbal argument with a group of Norteños. One of Perez’s fellow gang members threw the first punch. Perez then pulled out a loaded gun and fired at the group six times, hitting the victim in the abdomen. Perez was the youngest member of his gang and was trying to make a name for himself by shooting the victim.
