Sonoma County supervisor on trial for being a peeping Tom, burglary
ABC 7 News – Tuesday, a jury of 10 women and two men heard testimony in one of the more unusual criminal cases Sonoma County has seen in a while. Supervisor Efren Carrillo is charged with peeking into the window of a neighbor in his apartment complex.
Carrillo never spoke in court; instead, he listened to testimony from a neighbor identified only as Jane Doe who described several meetings. The meeting in question took place at 3:30 a.m. on July 13, 2013. Jane Doe says she awoke to the sound of someone tearing at the screen of her bedroom window, ran into the living room where friends were sleeping.
She says she looked outside; saw the defendant shirtless with his hands on his hips. Then, he banged on the door.
She asked what he wanted and Carrillo said “a drink.” Shortly after that, police arrested him. Carrillo was wearing only his underwear and socks. Carrillo’s attorney, Chris Adrian, doesn’t deny most of the facts. But, in the opening arguments, he reminded the jury that the charge is for peeking, when in fact, Carrillo just wanted to have a drink. He says the screen of the window broke when the supervisor knocked.
As to why supervisor Carrillo was wearing only underwear and socks outside her apartment at 3:30 a.m., Adrian said Carrillo told police it was a warm night. The case continues Wednesday with expected testimony from Carrillo. He entered alcohol treatment facility after the incident and has publicly apologized for having a drinking problem.
Whoever this Jane Doe is, I’d be scared shitless if I saw this in my window at 3:30 AM:
Good lord, Efren, you gotta hide that beak if you’re gonna go nocturnal commando in your skivvies! I mean all this chick needs to say when asked if the Hispanic man who peeped in her window had any distinguished features is, “Yeah, guy had an absolute bangalor of a nose.” Case closed. That’s a hefty fall from the 40 under 40 to being the peeping Tom in his tighty whities that needs another drink. All he had to do was cover up that nose and maybe he gets off scott free under the “it could of been anybody” defense. Nope, dude had that nose. Got bagged Steve Phillips style with his unique appearance. Big nose = Dead giveaway.
