The Pasadena City Attorney’s Office announced June 17 that Oscar Carrillo-Gonzalez pled guilty in Los Angeles County Superior Court to two misdemeanor charges in connection with the false report of an armed robbery he made to the Pasadena Police Department on the night of March 24, 2012.
Deputy City Prosecutor Joon Kim prosecuted the criminal case for the People.
“We believe we reached an appropriate sentence that reflects the seriousness of the crime committed,” City Attorney/City Prosecutor Michele Beal Bagneris said.
The false armed robbery call by Mr. Carrillo-Gonzalez set off a series of events that ultimately led to the death of then-suspect Kendrec McDade.
Carrillo-Gonzalez pled to one count of Penal Code Section 148.3(a) Making a False Report of Emergency (to a 911 dispatcher) and one count of Penal Code Section 148.5(a) Making a False Report of Criminal Offense to a Peace Officer.
Carillo- Gonzalez was placed on 36 months of probation with the following terms:
• Serve 90 days in county jail
• Perform 90 days of Cal Trans in lieu of additional jail time;
• Pay $3,078.69 as victim restitution to the Pasadena Police Department;
• Pay court costs and fees; and
• Obey all laws.
The Defendant was ordered by the Court to surrender himself to the Pasadena Branch of Los Angeles County Superior Court on June 27, 2013 to begin the county jail sentence.
