A reputed gang member and convicted murderer who got out of prison decades early with help from Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon is facing new felony charges, according to authorities.
Andrew Cachu was released in November after Deputy District Attorney Alisa Blair, a close Gascon ally, declined to present evidence at a hearing to determine whether he should remain in custody after aging out of the juvenile detention facility when he turned 25, Fox News Digital reported at the time...
Cachu was 17 in March 2015 when he gunned down Louis Amela, 41, outside the Sky Burger restaurant in Palmdale during a robbery, according to court documents.
"He never should have been out on the streets," Kathy Cady, a California attorney representing Amela's family, told Fox News Digital Thursday. "The only reason he was out on the streets is because of Gascon's policies and his handpicked surrogate, Alisa Blair, refused to put up any evidence…at the hearing."
Cachu shot Amela in the back as the man struggled with a group of assailants trying to steal his bicycle in a gang-motivated robbery, according to court documents. The victim’s girlfriend told investigators that two males, also believed to be gang members, held Amela down as Cachu fired two shots.
