On February 26, Gabriel Carrillo sustained severe bruises and cuts after an altercation that occurred between him and deputies over his possession of a prohibited cell phone. According to Carrillo, he was the victim of an unprovoked attack (while visiting his brother in jail).
The violent attack allegedly began after authorities discovered that Carrillo possessed a cell phone on his person, which was prohibited in visiting areas. The district attorney’s office filed charges against Carrillo for battery, resisting deputies, attempting to escape arrest and bringing a cell phone inside the jail.
Carrillo’s attorney, from Kaye, McLane & Bednarski, LLP, a federal criminal defense and civil rights law firm based in Pasadena, California, managed to get the charges dropped against Carrillo after presenting compelling evidence of Carillo’s innocence.
Carrillo’s case has turned the investigation around, where the focus was placed on deputy brutality among other misconduct which is now under investigation by federal authorities. Earlier in the year, a deputy was found guilty of sneaking in a cell phone to an inmate who happened to be a federal informant.
Over the last few months, Carrillo’s attorney, Ronald Kaye had been building a case that explains how his client was a victim, not an assailant. Mr. Kaye pointed out key evidence from the photos showing that both of Carrillo’s wrists had bruising, which indicates that is client was handcuffed throughout the attack.
As a result of Carrillo’s case, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimmiller said the “investigation into alleged misconduct in the Los Angeles County jail system remains active and ongoing.”
The Pasadena law offices of Kaye, McLane & Bednarski, LLP, represented Mr. Carillo. As a result of their tireless and dedicated counsel, the charges against Mr. Carillo were dropped. Their diligent efforts into investigating deputy misconduct contributed to an ongoing investigation into unscrupulous activity in the Los Angeles County jails.
