Judge sentences Ventura gang member to 16 years

Raul Hernandez (Ventura County Star) | June 28, 2012

A judge Thursday sentenced a man called a leader of a white supremacist group to 16 years in prison for being a felon in possession of a loaded shotgun and ammunition.

Ventura County Superior Court Judge Kevin DeNoce’s sentence angered prosecutor John Barrick, who had asked DeNoce to sentence Jeremy McCubbin to 37 years to life under the “three strikes” law, arguing that McCubbin was a threat to the community.

“It’s an aberration. It’s an outrageous sentence,” Barrick said in an interview.

Barrick said McCubbin is a violent career criminal who is going to get out of prison and ki*l someone.

“The sentence is disgusting. That’s all I’ve got to say,” Barrick said.

Outside the courtroom, a group of McCubbin’s family members and friends were smiling. They said McCubbin has served five years for the crime.

“I am happier than I was when I first came into the building,” said McCubbin’s aunt Donna Gray. “It’s better than the 37 years.”

In considering the sentence, DeNoce said, he struck one allegation, which means McCubbin couldn’t receive the harsher three-strike sentence of 37 years to life.

McCubbin’s lawyers — Patrick Rossetti and Jesyka Cho — filed a so-called Romero motion, which allows the defense to ask that a strike be dismissed.
