Robert Fuller's family wants 'complete transparency' in hanging death probe

Robert Fuller's family, as well as community members, are "enraged" that "the Sheriff's Department immediately declared his death a suicide," family attorney Jamon R. Hicks said in a statement Tuesday.

"For African-Americans in America, hanging from a tree is a lynching. Why was this cavalierly dismissed as a suicide and not investigated as a murder?" Hicks said. "We want complete transparency. To that end, the family should choose the pathologist to conduct the independent autopsy."

After 4 trials, Long Beach man found not guilty of murder

Jamon Hicks, a defense attorney at a Los Angeles-based law firm, took on the case after it was overturned.

“The trajectory of the case, that he was convicted at some point and that it was appealed — the (Court of Appeals) hears less than 5 percent of appeals,” Hicks said. “And to have it be unanimous — that’s just unheard of.”

Matthew Ngov, 28, was acquitted last week.

#BREAKING Four Trials Later, Man Accused of Murder Who Spent 8 Years in Jail is Free

Long Beach, CA - After spending the last 8 years in jail, and undergoing four trials, a 28-year-old man is free and home with his family after he was found not guilty of murder in connection with a 2011 drive-by shooting in Long Beach announced attorney Jamon Hicks with Douglas/Hicks Law.

Matthew Ngov, was accused of shooting Pablo Ortiz, 34, on June 21, 2011, as he rode his bicycle on the 2100 block of 14th Street near Dawson Ave in Long Beach.

Prosecutors alleged that Ngov was a member of the Asian Boyz gang. He was identified as Ortiz’s alleged killer after he was one of six people arrested in connection with an alleged attempted murder of two people outside of a restaurant.

Ngov was not charged in the restaurant shooting.

Ngov faced a single murder count with additional gun and gang allegations and had been in jail since his initial arrest in 2011 without bail. With no witnesses to the shooting and no weapon, the prosecution argued it had DNA evidence from the crime scene that pointed to Ngov’s guilt.

Ngov’s first trial in March 2013 resulted in a hung jury. Prosecutors retried the case in December 2013 and Ngov was convicted and sentenced to 55 years to life in prison. That conviction was reversed on appeal by a 3-0 vote in October 2015. Prosecutors retried the case for the third time in June 2018 resulting in a deadlocked jury. Prosecutors tried Ngov again this year. On Wed., Aug. 14, a jury found him not guilty of first-degree murder, shooting from a moving vehicle and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

“This is by far my greatest legal accomplishment to date,” said attorney Jamon Hicks. “It was also my most challenging. To bring an innocent man home after being in jail for eight years literally brought me to tears in court. My co-counsel Aja Mann and I are extremely thankful to the jurors who were attentive, pleasant, and responsible in their verdict. Justice was served.”

At the time of his arrest, Matthew Ngov was 20-years-old, worked at Discount Tires and was a few credits away from obtaining his associate degree from Long Beach Community College. A free man, he hopes to continue his education and try to move on with his life.

“I am just happy to be home with my family,” said Ngov. “It has been a long tough road--but my family was there every step of the way.”

"It is stunning to me, that even 25 years after the tragic deaths, people are STILL fascinated by all things #OJSimpson. That case struck a nerve in the consciousness of America that has still not been resolved.

"There seems to me to be continued fascination by people young and old, Black and white. Everybody is interested in talking about some aspect of that case. It will likely be seared into the fabric of this country for decades to come.

"Race relations in Los Angeles are often strained, but I am not sure that I can blame the current state of affairs on the O.J. Simpson case, as opposed to the tribalism that has been fostered and furthered by our current President. Hate crimes and dispiriting conversation seem now to be the rule rather than the exception. People have become untethered and free to launch racist attacks on entire races of people. All of the rhetoric is fueled by the man sitting in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

"In Los Angeles, distrust between the LAPD and the African American community is still high, fueled in part by lingering reminders exposed in the Simpson trial. No matter one’s views on OJ’s responsibility for the deaths of two people, there can be little serious dispute that #LAPD officers lied under oath during his televised trial of the century to convict someone whom they thought was guilty. That is the true travesty of justice in the O.J. Simpson saga."

Catch me on Fox 11 Los Angeles Wednesday morning at 10 am. and later that evening on the NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt discussing what has changed and more importantly what hasn't changed in 25 years. --- Carl Douglas

Family of man fatally tased by San Mateo County deputies files 2 suits

The family of Chinedu Okobi, a 36-year-old unarmed black man who died last year after being tased multiple times by San Mateo County sheriff’s deputies, filed two lawsuits this week against the county and officers involved in Okobi’s death.

Flanked by Okobi’s sister and mother at a news conference Friday in Oakland, attorneys Carl Douglas and John Burris said the deputies violated Okobi’s civil rights through racial profiling, excessive force and Taser misuse.

#ANNOUNCEMENT
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The family of a man beaten in a parking lot fight at Dodger Stadium early Saturday morning has retained acclaimed civil rights and personal injury attorney Carl Douglas of Douglas / Hicks Law, APC.

Rafael Reyna, 47, allegedly got into a verbal dispute with another man that turned physical sometime after midnight Saturday following the Dodgers game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Dodgers lost 5-4 in what was the longest regular-season game in the stadium’s history.

Mr. Reyna is currently hospitalized in a coma.

The suspect is still outstanding and is described as a man in his 20s. Police say he may have driven off in a white SUV, possibly a Toyota 4Runner.

Security Guard Pleads Not Guilty to Murder in Walgreens Fatal Shooting

"Jonathan Hart was unarmed. He was a homeless, gay, black man who was profiled we say because he was homeless, who was harassed we say because he was gay and who was shot we say because he was black," Carl Douglas told reporters outside court. "It's clear that he did not pose a deadly threat to anyone."

A security guard charged in the shooting death of a homeless man he suspected of shoplifting at a Walgreens in Hollywood pleaded not guilty Thursday to murder.

The following statement is from national civil rights and personal injury attorney Carl Douglas on Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey’s decision to charge Donald Vincent Ciota with murder in the Dec. 2 shooting death of Jonathan Hart (also known as Sky Hart) over a shoplifting dispute at the Hollywood store.

“The family received news of District Attorney Jackie Lacey’s decision to charge Donald Ciotta with mixed emotions.

“One the one hand, this is the first Christmas they spent without their beloved Jonathan.

“Christmas is a time for family and the hole that his absence created will never be repaired.

“On the other hand, the family is heartened to learn that the process of someone accepting responsibility for Jonathan’s death will now begin in earnest.

“Justice is now on the horizon.

“Lacey’s decision to charge 2nd-degree murder reflects the horrendous circumstances of his death.

“This 21-year-old homeless Black gay man was unarmed and was attempting to evade further confrontation when he was shot from behind.

“The evidence is clear that Jonathan was not posing any threat at all to Mr. Ciota and that the shooting was a gross overreaction which justifies a punitive result.

“Although no one believes that Mr. Ciota planned to kill a man when he woke up that morning, his conduct reflects that he was inadequately trained and grossly unsuited to work as an armed security guard in a high traffic store frequented often by a diverse blend of consumers.

“The family vows to not let Jonathan’s death be in vain. They continue to stress their campaign to boycott Walgreens (#BoycottWalgreens) and is launching a new effort to make America safe again (#MASA).”

Douglas said Hart’s family are planning to file a $525 million wrongful-death suit against Walgreens and continue to call for a boycott of Walgreens until armed guards are removed from all of their stores.
