High Risk DV Offender Sentenced to 35-Life in Prison

DATE:  December 1, 2017

CASE:  Clarence Wesley (Case #16FE014705)

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Allison Dunham, Domestic Violence High Risk Unit

The Honorable Trena Burger-Plavan sentenced Clarence Wesley to 35 years to life in prison.  On September 27, 2017, a jury convicted Wesley of felony domestic violence and criminal threats.  The jury also found true great bodily injury, personal use of a knife allegations and that Wesley has a prior 2014 domestic violence conviction. Wesley’s prior 1999 strike convictions for sexual penetration with a foreign object, forcible oral copulation and robbery were also found true.

On July 31, 2016, law enforcement was dispatched to an assault at 65th and Sky Parkway.  Responding deputies found the victim had been stabbed multiple times in the back and neck by her boyfriend, Clarence Wesley, who had already fled the scene.  Wesley was high risk parole because he is a convicted sex offender and wore an ankle monitor with GPS tracking. During his flight, he cut off his ankle monitor and disposed of his knife.  Wesley was found four days later and arrested on the present offenses.
