CASE: Fabian Pozos
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Darren Goodman
District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert announced today that the Honorable Russell Hom sentenced 23-year-old Fabian Pozos to 26 years to life in prison. On August 4, 2015, a jury convicted Pozos of first-degree murder and found the use of a knife allegation to be true.
Pozos lived in an apartment next door to Maurice Lynch at a housing facility operated by Volunteers of America. At around midnight on June 21, 2014, Pozos was inside Mr. Lynch’s apartment with other guests. Pozos was being aggressive with a female guest and Mr. Lynch confronted him. After a brief altercation, Pozos threatened to kill Mr. Lynch and other guests before going back to his apartment. Pozos retrieved a knife from his apartment and confronted Mr. Lynch, who was on his way to alert staff at the facility of Pozos’ behavior. Pozos stabbed Mr. Lynch in the chest, puncturing his heart. He died minutes later.
