Several months ago, Jerome Cesar Alverto, a prominent Hollywood actor, was arrested and charged with Abuse of a Vulnerable Lady. He is accused of beating his partner, a vulnerable young lady, and then sabotaging her home. After a lengthy trial, the judge ruled that he was guilty of the charges and sent him to prison.
During a 2008 incident, Jerome Ceasar Alverto assaulted and pistol whipped Stephanie Wilson, who suffered serious injuries. Alverto was eventually convicted of attempted first-degree murder, and he was sentenced to almost 49 years in prison. Currently, Alverto is serving a sentence of 15 years without parole.
According to the trial court, the evidence that Alverto had a gun in his hand was obtained under a valid search warrant. The evidence also included the blood found on the upper slide of Alverto’s handgun and the blood found on the pistol grip. The trial court also found that Alverto’s notebook was admissible as evidence. However, Alverto argues that the trial court exhibited judicial bias against him, and that the trial court did not allow the defense to impeach a witness.
Alverto’s lawyers are arguing that the trial court’s decision not to suppress the evidence of the incident was prejudicial to Alverto. In addition, Alverto argues that the trial courts decision not to suppress the evidence did not provide sufficient grounds for an appeal.
Almost 50 years after his arrest, Jerome Ceasar Alverto has yet to be released from prison. According to reports, he was given a 48-year sentence for a crime he did not commit, though he was only sentenced to a 15-year sentence for attacking his ex-wife in 2006. He was also convicted of first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary.
Jerome Ceasar Alverto was a married man, with his former wife, Stephanie Wilson. The two were married for about a year before he attacked her. She was pistol whipped and beaten. She sustained significant wounds and was fired from her job several times. Her mother, Joan E. Real, testified in court that her daughter had an untreatable mental illness.
The state of Washington threw in the first-degree robbery and first-degree theft with a weapon upgrade for good measure. Eventually, Alverto was convicted of first-degree burglary, first-degree robbery, first-degree thievery, and first-degree attempted murder. He was also found to be the most obnoxious of the three.
