Defendant Sentenced for Domestic Violence Shooting

DATE:  July 28, 2017

CASE:  Marcos Adams (Case #15F05630)

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Jesse Saucedo, Domestic Violence Unit

The Honorable Timothy Frawley sentenced Marcos Adams to 30 years and 4 months in prison.  On May 31, 2017, a jury convicted Adams of attempted voluntary manslaughter, corporal injury on spouse or cohabitant, assault with a deadly weapon, and felon in possession of a firearm.  The jury also found true multiple allegations that Adams personally used a firearm and caused great bodily injury involving domestic violence. 

On August 30, 2015, Marcos Adams, a validated gang member, and the victim got into an argument outside of an apartment complex on Stockton Boulevard.  The victim punched Adams once in the face.  Adams responded by pulling out his firearm and shooting at the victim’s head, hitting her in the elbow as she covered her face.  The bullet became lodged in the victim’s elbow.  Adams fled the scene and was not apprehended until late 2016 when he committed another act of domestic violence against a different victim.

Two prior strikes were also found true for a 2004 robbery conviction and a 2011 felon in possession of firearm conviction with a gang enhancement.
