|Yolo County courthouse at 725 Court Street, Woodland, California|
We need to start organizing against the death penalty!!!!! Now is the time the jury is deliberating to keep the death penalty for Ernesto Arellano and Oscar Cervantes. We have about a month until the penalty phase ends. The penalty phase is when family and supporters try to convince the jury that arellano and cervantes are valuable to society. Let's put pressure on the jury. I propose we meet at the Yolo County Courthouse each Monday night (5 p.m.) until they make their decision.
After a five-month trial and nearly four weeks of deliberations, a Yolo County jury Thursday convicted three suspected Woodland gang members of first-degree murder in the Halloween night shooting deaths of two men in 2002.
Defendants Ernesto Duran Arellano, 34, Oscar Hurtado Cervantes, 32, and James Joseph Olague, 29, were convicted of first-degree murder in the killings of Woodlanders Eric Eugene Folsom, 17, and Robert Michael Stepper, 20.
The three also were convicted of attempted murder in the shooting that night of two 14-year-old girls who survived.
