[ARCHIVED] Jury Return Verdict of Guilty in Anaya Trial

County of Humboldt Seal for the District Attorney


October 29, 2021

District Attorney Maggie Fleming announced that today a Humboldt County jury found 27-year-old Jorge Luis Anaya guilty of felony assault with force likely to produce bodily injury (Penal Code [PC] §245(a)(4)) and misdemeanor resisting a peace officer (PC §148(a)). 

The trial stemmed from an incident on July 28, 2021, in the Humboldt County Correctional Facility. According to testimony by a correctional deputy, Mr. Anaya lunged toward another inmate and punched him approximately three times in the head while they were in the recreational yard.  Each time Mr. Anaya advanced, the other inmate backed away. The correctional deputy entered the recreational yard and ordered Mr. Anaya and the other inmate to the ground. When Mr. Anaya did not comply, several deputies intervened. As deputies escorted Mr. Anaya out of the area, he proceeded to kick the other inmate in the head while that inmate was face down on the ground and handcuffed. 

At the time of the incident, Mr. Anaya was serving a sentence for violation of probation; he had been on probation for a previous felony assault and has an additional prior violation of probation. 

Deputy District Attorney Jessica Acosta prosecuted the case with the assistance of District Attorney Investigator Marvin Kirkpatrick. Conflict Counsel RJ Leohner represented Mr. Anaya. Judge Wilson presided over the trial. Mr. Anaya is scheduled to be sentenced on November 17, 2021.
