The case against Geovanny Falcon, the man currently in custody for the assault and battery of a bus operator in November, is moving forward to trial. GCA 875 had communicated to the District Attorney’s Office the desire for a maximum sentence against Mr. Falcon and that is what is currently under way. Mr. Falcon will be arraigned on December 26 for the crime of PC 245.2 (battery against a transportation operator) which carriers a maximum sentence of 5 years in prison. Pre-trial dates will be selected for early January.
Deputy District Attorney Kirsten Brown has been in constant communication with the Union on the proceedings. DDA Brown and the DA’s Office is aware of the membership’s interest in the proceedings and desire to see this man behind bars.
"Our office is definitely taking this seriously", said DDA Brown.
