Joseph Solano : Sister of slain Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Joseph Solano has slammed newly proposed justice reform measures that would reduce the prison sentence for her brother’s alleged killer.

Joseph Solano“I can’t even imagine it happening,” Christina Solano said on “America’s Newsroom.”

“If they do that, his sentence will be increased to 15 to 20 years. It’s a disaster. I’m having trouble sleeping.

This isn’t fair to my brother. This man should be imprisoned for the rest of his life.”

On June 10, Joseph Solano was shot while off-duty and died two days later from his injuries.

The man arrested for killing him, according to Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon, wants to drop “special circumstance” charges against him, which means he could walk free one day.

In June 2019, Rhett Nelson, 31, of Utah, is accused of shooting Solano in the back of the head at a Jack in the Box fast food restaurant in Alhambra.

Solano, who was 50 years old at the time, died two days later. Nelson also killed Dmitry Koltsov, a professional skateboarder from Russia, earlier that day, according to prosecutors.

Gascon unveiled a plan on Monday that will bring major changes to the local criminal justice system, including the abolition of the death penalty and the refusal to prosecute certain crimes.

Gascon, a former San Francisco district attorney and Los Angeles police officer, announced the dismissal of a large number of misdemeanour cases, claiming that nearly half of those incarcerated on pre-trial misdemeanour offences suffer from mental illness.

One directive stated, “Los Angeles County courts should not be revolving doors for those in need of treatment and services.”

Unless “factors for considerations” exist, many misdemeanour cases will be declined or dismissed prior to arraignment as of Tuesday.

Trespassing, disturbing the peace, minor in possession of alcohol, driving without a licence, driving with a suspended licence, making criminal threats, drug and paraphernalia possession, being under the influence of a controlled substance, public intoxication, loitering to commit prostitution, and resisting arrest are among the offences on the list.

Prosecutors will also refrain from seeking the death penalty, and those charged with misdemeanours and low-level felonies will be referred to community-based programmes.

Juveniles charged with misdemeanours will no longer face charges.

Solano is concerned that those who are not sentenced to life in prison for murder will commit the same crime once they are released. Families who have had similar experiences, according to Solano, will “suffer” as well.

“My brother was an innocent bystander waiting for a drink in a Jack-In-The-Box when [a] man approached him and shot him.

Then he’ll be free in 15, 20, years? I’m not sure what you’re talking about. I’m not sure what you’re talking about, “Solano explained.

“What is the point of all of this? He should be there for us, for the people out there, for their safety.

Who knows if they let these guys out if they kill someone else. … It’s a travesty.”
