Harris’s letter was sent one month later to Guy, there was a shifting of the San Francisco police force, one that would assist in clearing the way for cases like Guy’s. Chesa Boudin won the election to the district attorney’s office on a progressive platform. He established a district attorney’s office once he was in office. “post-conviction unit,” Their main mandate was to hunt for wrongful convictions and Long-term prisoners who have not been released could be a good option. to the public. Overseen by Boudin’s chief of staff, Kate Chatfield, an assistant district attorney named Dana Drusinsky started scouring prison files. It seemed that a 58-year old woman, who was 17 when she committed an offense, would be a good candidate. They even mentioned her name to Harris’s office. Harris knew who they were talking to.
Harris had already given the Guy to Andrea Lindsay is a public defender who has a warm, deliberate manner. Lindsay’s task was to take Guy’s record and It is possible to combine it into a story. It was a wonderful story. to the crime, it wasn’t the public defender’s job to Ask about the Details about why and how. Guy had already spent so much time, it no longer mattered. What might be important to Lindsay believed that judges were some of the best. the Strange features the She began writing it in her motion. The A plea agreement was reached. That It was strange enough. However, it all came down to a more fundamental mystery. the Original fitness hearing. Lindsay was able to see that Kline had been the But, judge the Transcript was unavailable to be found — she didn’t even know if there was one. She then laid out all that was known. the Guy was too young to be dangerous. and It was not right to keep her in prison. the Justice is important.
The next step was for Chatfield’s team to Notify the Albert Hohl’s family that it was about to Reopen the The case of the woman who murdered him. Hohl’s relatives disapproved. One wrote in a note. “I do not feel it’s right that she is released to live a normal life when Albert was brutally murdered.” But not now the They were turning. The Case would be assigned to Woodside has a judge. to Anyone who has enough space the calendar.
In April 2021 Guy was driven to San Francisco from Chowchilla. She was placed in Woodside’s holding cell by a guard. Her siblings were outside. the Courtroom: Rosetta, her sister and a desk clerk in a single-room hotel in the Mission, and Marty, her brother was a Department of Public Works employee. A middle-aged white man entered alone, unrecognized by anybody — Perdigone’s fiancé, Daniel.
Kline was in his chambers preparing. Since the case’s return to His jurisdiction, he had been wrestling how to You can handle it. He knew that some judges might withdraw from a situation such as this. “the one who sent her to prison,” He thought that the The assumption would be that he would be biased in favor his previous decision. Kline believed he could approach. the matter down the According to middle to the law. The The law required that he make the decision the Case as if he were actually seeing it the first time. He thought he was turning his present-day self into something. the Guy was prevented from seeing the original by a juvenile judge.
Lindsay’s motion had made for interesting reading. Kline wasn’t like Boudin who believed that the The criminal justice system must be overhauled. He thought American courts were the best. to Be one of them the fairest in the world. He considered the California courts to Be one of them the fairest in the United States. Guy was deserved, he thought. to Go to prison, period. When it was all put together, the The story took on a sinister dimension.
Guy left Woodside, in 1981. She was then tracked down to adult court. the She was offered a deal by the prosecutor. If she plead guilty, to He would murder her and send her to the California Youth Authority for a term lasting eight years the Wright was also punished the same way. Because there was no legal distinction, the 1980s Between the Shooter and the accomplice in felony homicide, this wouldn’t have been a way of letting Guy off easy, but rather a by-theBook treatment for a minor The plea had probably made sense for a second reason — the Persistent problem with motive. Kline understood this from the Wright case the Girls had never gone to look for a handgun. to That night, they committed murder. An adult had given them a gun. While this didn’t make Hohl’s killing less serious, it seemed to Cast the whole event in a different light — more impulsive, less vicious. Cruel and stupid and It’s not premeditated but it’s senseless.
