Vacaville ex-con to stand trial on 3rd DUI arrest

By
From page A8 | August 06, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — An ex-con from Vacaville was ordered Tuesday to stand trial on felony charges related to his third driving under the influence arrest and a March collision that injured four people.

Ali Sharifzadeh, 23, spent the evening of March 22 at the Str8 Shooter bar on East Monte Vista Avenue drinking with three others. They left the bar a little after 10 p.m., with Sharifzadeh behind the wheel of an Infiniti belonging to one of his companions, according to testimony at his probable cause hearing.

Sharifzadeh made it not quite a half-mile before he ran a red light, plowing into an SUV with a family of three inside at the corner of Monte Vista Avenue and Dobbins Street. All three people in the SUV were injured.

Sharifzadeh, who has two previous DUI convictions, did not stay at the crash scene, but Vacaville police tracked him to a nearby parking lot. That resulted in his also being charged with leaving the scene of an injury accident.

Sharifzadeh had been released from prison under the state’s Post-Release Community Supervision program at the time of the crash and he was also on probation for a 2012 DUI. He also had a DUI conviction in 2009. Court records reflect Sharifzadeh has violated the terms of his DUI probations six times, with judges putting him back on probation each time.

Most recently, after spending a few days in jail, Sharifzadeh posted $37,500 bail.

After refusing a request from Sharifzadeh’s lawyer to reduce the pending DUI crash causing injury charge to a misdemeanor, Judge Donna Stashyn ordered Sharifzadeh to return to court Aug. 18.

    That is ridiculous. The bar is not responsible for him. This country needs to stop pointing the blame at others.

    Lucy A- sadly California"s "Dram Shop" laws (laws that hold bars, liquor stores and restaurants liable for the sale of alcohol to obviously intoxicated patrons) are some of the most limited in the country. California places liability on the shoulders of the individual consuming rather than the business owner over serving, unless the individual is a minor. Good job liquor lobby. (The name Dram Shop Law comes from the Liquid dram, an English unit of measurement.).

    I see your for a nanny state. Why shouldn't a person be responsible for their actions? No one pulled this guy into a bar and made him drink. He needs to get his disease under control.

    6 times being placed back on probation?? Was the judge his drinking buddy? Maybe the 7th time will be the charm and if it isn't yes by all means blame the bar and not the person consuming the alcohol and driving drunk. Blame everyone else but the one who is truly responsible. Welcome to America

    You people are ridiculous. The prior DUI's were misdemeanors. A judge cant send someone to prison for a misdemeanor. Were you sleeping through civics class. And with prison over crowding, where are these people suppose to be locked up? Unfortunately, there are no places to put them. Is this guy a doosh? Without a doubt. Should he be imprisoned? One would hope. Is the bar at fault? Not at all. Can the judge only deal with the resources available? Absolutely. Judge Stashyn is a smart judge, a no nonsense judge and a fair judge. But there is only so much a judge can do with the resources available.

    I can not believe what I'm reading. Why isn't this fool locked up, I knew someone that had 3 dui's and he was locked up for16 month's cause the DA lost the paperwork and they had a Warrant out for his arrest and he was in jail all the time. They were to freaking lazy to look up his name ontheir computer to find out where he was at. He wrote a letter to judge valleral( not sure of the spelling) but he ask him where he was and he said I was, in jail all this time.the judge found out that the DA lost his paperwork and the judge let him out with in the hour.this just show how the DA and whoever else is, envolved don't know their arse from a hole in the ground.so come election day make sure these fools don't get relected.
