CASE: Lamar Wilson (Case #21FE008577)

PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Heather Stephenson, Domestic Violence Unit

Lamar Wilson was convicted by a jury of battery causing serious bodily injury, corporal injury on an intimate partner, assault with force likely to commit great bodily injury and misdemeanor battery on an intimate partner. The jury also found true an allegation that Wilson personally inflicted serious bodily injury.

Wilson and the victim were in a dating relationship.  On May 4, 2021, Wilson wrapped both of his hands around the victim’s neck and strangled her, restricting her breathing. Wilson let go and then strangled the victim a second time until she temporarily lost consciousness. During the assault Wilson left bruising and redness on the victim’s neck.  On May 25, 2021, Wilson came back to the victim’s apartment, broke in through her security door and threw her to the ground.  Wilson has multiple prior domestic violence related convictions.

An allegation that Wilson has a prior strike conviction for first-degree residential burglary will be determined at the sentencing hearing.

Wilson faces a maximum sentence of 19 years in state prison and one year in county jail.  Sentencing is set for June 17, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. in Department 13 before the Honorable Matthew Gary.
