Defendant Convicted of Attempted Murder, Domestic Violence

DATE:  September 21, 2016

CASE:  Bobby Hogue (Case #15F07761)

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Allison Dunham, Domestic Violence Unit

Bobby Hogue was convicted by a jury of attempted murder and corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant.  The jury found true the allegation that Hogue caused great bodily injury under circumstances involving domestic violence on both charges.  Hogue was also convicted of mayhem.

On September 25, 2015, an anonymous caller reported that a woman at a homeless camp was badly injured. Responding firefighters found a woman on the floor of a tent with obvious head and facial trauma.  She was bleeding, barely breathing, hypothermic, and close to death.  The victim was taken to a hospital and underwent immediate surgery on a life-threatening head injury.  The victim also suffered bruising all over her body, bite marks, a fractured nose, and broken teeth.  Officers found items belonging to Hogue at the crime scene. It was discovered that Hogue had a criminal history of domestic violence beginning in 1993 until his last conviction in 2014.  The 2014 case involved the same victim at the homeless camp.  

The victim was hospitalized for one month before being released to an acute care facility, where she remains today. The victim can only speak in a whisper and can only say two words at a time.  In addition, she can no longer walk and requires a feeding tube to eat.

Hogue faces a maximum potential sentence of 14 years in state prison.  Sentencing is set for October 28, 2016, at 2:00 p.m. in Department 29 before the Honorable Timothy Frawley.

This case was prosecuted as a High Risk Domestic Violence case due to the defendant’s long history of domestic violence and the serious nature of the crime.
