June 29, 2015

On June 29, 2015, in the case of the People of the State of California v. Phoenix Campbell-Loya, the jury found the defendant guilty of felony assault with a deadly weapon and felony carrying a concealed dirk or dagger.

On December 3, 2014, the defendant approached two 17-year-old boys in Shay Park and, after a brief conversation, stole property from them and assaulted one of the boys with a knife while threatening to stab him. The victim, who was not injured in the assault, was not previously acquainted with the defendant. The defendant has been in custody since the incident.

Deputy District Attorney Roger C. Rees prosecuted the case with assistance from District Attorney Investigator Jack Bernstein. The defendant was represented at trial by Deputy Public Defender Meagan O’Connell. Judge Marilyn Miles presided over the week-long jury trial. In addition to the two teenagers, Arcata Police Officers Jeremiah Kasinger and Joshua Phinney testified at trial.

The scheduled sentencing date is July 27, 2015. The maximum sentence for these crimes is four years, eight months, in state prison.

District Attorney Maggie Fleming added, "I appreciate the time and attention given to the case by the jury and the efforts of Roger, Jack and the Arcata Police Department."
