From the Office of the District Attorney:
Martinez, Calif. –
Today, Contra Costa Sheriff Deputy Andrew Hall was sentenced to six years state prison for assault with a firearm and inflicting great bodily injury upon Laudemer Aboleda in downtown Danville on November 3, 2018.
As found by the jury, Deputy Andrew Hall unreasonably shot Laudemer Aboleda. This sentence is reflective of the gravity of the crime Deputy Hall committed. Deputy’s Hall’s actions were dangerous, unreasonable, and excessive. In sentencing the defendant to prison, the Court recognized the need for accountability in Deputy Hall’s decision to fire multiple times at Laudemer Aboleda, taking his life.
No sentence imposed will bring Laudemer Aboleda back to his family. The sentence imposed today is proportionate to the egregious shooting committed by a law enforcement officer who took the life of one man, and in doing so endangered the lives of his fellow officers and civilians.
We respect the ruling of the judge and extend our condolences to the family of Laudemer Arboleda.
