News Release
January 6, 2015

On December 8, 2015, in the case of the People of the State of California v. Jason Armstrong, the jury found the defendant, age 41, guilty of second degree murder for the killing of Daneyal Siddique, and found true two special allegations regarding the use of a firearm in that crime.

On January 6, 2016, the Hon. John T. Feeney, Judge, sentenced the defendant to an indeterminate sentence of 15 years to life for second degree murder, and a consecutive indeterminate sentence of 25 years to life for the use a firearm causing the death of Daneyal Siddique. Because the two indeterminate sentences are consecutive, the defendant will be eligible for parole in forty years.

Daneyal was the oldest of six children. Daneyal’s mother Susan, and two of his sisters, Jamila and Salma, were present at the hearing, and each of them addressed the judge prior to sentencing. Daneyal’s fiancée wasn’t able to attend, but she wrote a letter that was read by Jamila. Daneyal’s father, brother, and two other sisters were also unable to attend the hearing, but his sister Salma shared their thoughts about what his loss meant to everyone in the family.
