Vandalism In Contra Costa County

Posted by Seth Chazin | Aug 02, 2013 | 0 Comments

Communications Tower in Danville Knocked Over

Vandals in Danville apparently knocked over a 75 foot communications tower which was located in the hills west of Danville in Contra Costa County.  The tower was located on Rocky Ridge near Las Trampas Regional Wilderness area.  This incident was reported by the East Bay Regional Park Police, indicating that the wires that anchored the tower in place had been cut.  This tower is used by several government and public safety agencies.

Vandalism cases such as these can be very serious and subjects the defendant to imprisonment under Penal Code section 1170 (h) or fines up to $10,000 under California Penal Code section 594 (a) and (b).  This type of case is clearly a matter of whether the perpetrators can actually be identified.  Identity defenses are often successful at trial.

To protect your rights and your criminal record, contact an attorney immediately if you are accused of vandalism.

ABOLISH THE DEATH PENALTY

“The death penalty is a lie, a misguided mistake born of anger and frustration. Capital punishment has become a perverse monument to inequality, to how some lives matter and others do not. It is a violent example of how we protect and value the rich and abandon and devalue the poor. The death penalty is a grim, disturbing shadow formed by the legacy of racial apartheid and bias against the poor that condemns the disfavored among us, but corrupts us all. It’s the perverse symbol elected officials use to strengthen their ‘tough on crime’ reputations and distract us from confronting the causes of violence. It is finally the enemy of grace, redemption and all of us who recognize that each person is more than their worse act.”
