Man enters plea in latest criminal escapade

FAIRFIELD — An 22-year-old man who has been in and out of Judge Wendy G. Getty’s courtroom since 2012 was back in court Thursday, where he pleaded not guilty to his newest criminal charges.

David A. McDaniels was arrested Tuesday after a two-hour standoff with police at a Santa Barbara Way home he had run into after police spotted him on East Tabor Avenue. Daniels had been on the lam since June after his most-recent instance of disregarding Getty’s court orders.

McDaniels first came under Getty’s purview in early 2012 after he was arrested for felony assault causing great bodily injury. He posted $25,000 bail after a brief stint in jail.

He was arrested again a few weeks after posting bail, for driving a stolen car. He posted another $2,000 bail and was out of jail again. McDaniels was arrested again a few months later for stealing a car and committing a spree of six auto burglaries. He was looking at more than four years behind bars but after a few months in jail, he pleaded no contest to four felonies.

Getty told him she would consider placing him on probation when he was sentenced.

McDaniels got out of jail before sentencing by posting another $25,000 and then, after being warned by Getty she might not consider probation after all, was a no-show for a January 2013 court appearance. He was arrested three months later and in August 2013 Getty placed him on three years of probation, gave him credit for five months of time he spent in jail and ordered him to do 15 hours of community service every week.

Getty ordered McDaniels to attend a follow-up hearing in March 2014 that was postponed until April and then postponed again until June. He was a no-show for the June hearing, which caused Getty to issue the arrest warrant that resulted in his newest arrest. Authorities also charged him with a new felony domestic violence offense.

McDaniels now faces up to 10 years behind bars. He will remain in jail at least until he appears Aug. 26 for a probable cause hearing on the domestic violence charge.

    Judge Getty should be ashamed of herself for continually letting this career criminal out on bail.

    Agreed. We need to remember all the Judges who release criminals upon our community and VOTE them OFF the Bench. If they cannot be voted off the bench, we need to form a Law Abiding Posse to sit in their courtrooms and speak out against the release, release, release of criminals.

    "faces 10 years in prison" ... wrong .. What the perp faces is Judge Getty who has shown herself to be too cowardly to apply proper sentencing.

    Where does he get the collateral to post bail? Him skipping out on trial dates must have forced the bail to be revoked and whatever was 'put up' to be surrendered? The system, after arrest, has to be reevaluated.

    I think the judges and criminals are in cahoots

    Another astounding look into our revolving door, "catch and release" penal system in Solano County. Sickening. Career criminals commit felonies, get arrested and are back out on the streets in time for dinner. This needs to stop. Now.

    "He was facing 4 yrs, but received probation." Then he continued with his life of crime, being caressed on the wrist by the judge while she whispered sweet nothings in his ear, telling him about their future encounters he could expect if he heed to the wrist caressing. He must like the touch of her caress and her whispering in his ear, because now, instead of facing the 4 yrs he was never really facing, he's facing 10 pretend years, which really means more caressing and probation i.e. future violations so he can waste the courts time some more, while the judge does her caressing.

    I was admittedly a former andt-Jess Sullivan reader. But as of late, something has seriously changed in his journalism. Thank you once again Jess for laying out the facts for us!
