District Attorney Maggie Fleming

District Attorney Maggie Fleming announced today that Waymond Starritt was convicted of felony violations of carrying a concealed dagger and resisting a law enforcement officer. The charges arose when police attempted to contact the defendant on Church Street on June 20, 2015 at 12:30 a.m. Starritt, a 49-year-old Eureka resident, fled on foot, discarding weapons and injuring the officer in the ensuing struggle.

The jury’s guilty verdict came after a four-day trial before Judge John T. Feeney. The case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney David Christensen and defended by Deputy Public Defender Luke Brownfield. An additional allegation that Starritt committed these offenses while out of custody on his own recognizance was also found true by Judge Feeney.

The defendant is already awaiting sentencing on a separate felony case involving his possession of a weapon as well as possession of heroin for sale with prior drug convictions. He faces a maximum of 17 years for the combination of these and Friday’s convictions. His sentencing hearing is scheduled for October 26.
