Mom in shocking hit-and-run video slams ‘murderer-friendly’ DA; Gascon stands by light sentence

Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon just doesn’t know when to leave well enough alone, as the radical Democrat continues to dig a deeper hole for himself regarding the case of a young mother and her infant son being mowed over by a teenager with a criminal history.

Standing by the light sentence handed down to the now 17-year-old hit-and-run driver, who we now know was on probation at the time, having been convicted of felony poisoning in 2019 after spiking a teenage girl’s drink in high school, Gascon is citing “misinformation” while claiming his office did all it could after declining to charge the teenager with assault with a deadly weapon or attempted murder. He even disputed the victim’s account that she was nearly murdered.

This resulted in the woman, who literally placed her body between the vehicle and her baby when she realized a collision was imminent, denouncing the “murderer-friendly” district attorney.

The disturbing hit-and-run can be seen here:

“There is misinformation circulating about an incident that occurred last summer in which a minor, driving under the influence, struck a woman and her child with a car in Venice. It is important that the public knows the facts,” Gascon tweeted on Monday, adding, “After reviewing the evidence, our office charged the minor with the most serious offenses possible under the law: two counts of felony assault & one count of felony leaving the scene of an accident that caused injury without exchanging information.”

The teen was sentenced to just 5 months in a “juvenile probation camp,” and Gascon, who is on the verge of facing a recall due to spiking crime and criminal-friendly policies, embarked on a Twitter campaign of shifting blame and claiming that his office simply followed California law:

Meanwhile, the victim, who has asked to be identified only by her first name Rachel, blasted Gascon in a message to Fox News Digital.

“Not only did you not charge attempted murder that is provable by the driving pattern, you didn’t charge assault with a deadly weapon with a car because it would be a strike on the minor’s record,” Rachel said. “Under your policies minors cannot receive charges that result in a strike offense. This is how you ensure that their records can be wiped clean when they turn 18. I guess that’s the magical number when people become decent human beings and contributing members of society. Anything before that apparently doesn’t matter.”

“Gascon, you are right, there is misinformation being circulated and perpetuated by your office about the incident where my 8-month-old son and I were almost murdered by a felon,” she added. “The minor was charged with the most serious offenses possible under your murderer-friendly policies. These policies are not California law.”
