District Attorney Dan Dow announced that on October 24, 2019, a San Luis Obispo County Jury has found Tyrell Paul Hebert (DOB: 06/06/1984) guilty of corporal injury to a cohabitant/child’s parent, cruelty to a child and attempted criminal threats.
“The victim and her daughter displayed amazing courage throughout this process, and it is only due to their strength and bravery that the defendant was able to be held accountable for his unlawful actions. I am also grateful to the jury for taking their oath to heart and taking the time it needed to consider the evidence and reach true and just verdicts in this case,” said Deputy District Attorney Jon Kawashima. “Finally, the successful prosecution of this case could not have been achieved without the outstanding investigation of Atascadero Police Officer Ron Overacker as well as the hard work of the District Attorney’s Office support staff. We are hopeful that the verdicts in this case will send a message to Domestic Violence survivors in our County that their voices will be heard.”
The crimes took place between August 13, 2018 to August 14, 2018 in Atascadero. Mr. Hebert repeatedly physically abused his live-in girlfriend in front of her juvenile daughter and later returned to the scene and threatened to kill her.
The jury reached their verdict after six half-days of trial and an afternoon of deliberation. Sentencing is scheduled for December 5, 2019 in Department 6 of the San Luis Obispo County Superior Court, the Honorable Judge Hernaldo J. Baltodano presiding. Mr. Hebert faces a maximum sentence of four years and four months in state prison for his convictions.
The case was investigated by the Atascadero Police Department with the assistance of the District Attorney’s Bureau of Investigation and was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Jon Kawashima who is assigned to the Domestic Violence Prosecution Unit.
