5:31 pm
factor in the case, he testified that he meant to use his stun gun instead of his handgun. michael joins us to take a look at all of this bear is a lot of outrage of his early release, 11 months of the two year sentence, is that our raid justified? >> let us talk about this, either got a four year sentence, he is supposed to serve two years. he is getting out early, should people be upset? some should. i'm telling you, in this case use either on kahane's misery side, or the oscar grant side, people say four years is not even enough for what he did. other people say law enforcement, he is a cop out there doing a tough job, he should not even got that much time. but it depends is he getting out too soon in my opinion yes. should he ever got more time in my opinion, yes. but that is not how it is working out what what boggles my mind is that they notice wyatt said
5:32 pm
the community this lake. he got a minimum sentence, let him serve the whole thing. should they be outraged, they should, but lawfully. >> also house the decision made to release someone 11 months out of a two-year sentence. >> the jail usually controls that, they decide who they put out the backdoor remember this is l.a.. you have the movie stars they go in for 90 days are six months, they serve one day or two days and they are out. the get a guy like mehserle, and people say he will not recommend another crime like this he will be a model prisoner. so when you have jail overcrowding who you should out of the back door, the people with the most trouble or the least. the fact that he was a police officer.. >> does that play a role in the decision? >> unfortunately i think it does. should it? nope. >> so what happens he gets out? that process is over?
5:33 pm
>> it is not over, he can go on parole from 3 to 10 years, keep in mind jaycee dugard, she went through all that, remember what happened to the parole and how they did not look into the back of the house. they have a tough job, but when they have model prisoners and i can also guarantee you that mr. li will be, they will not be paying a lot of attention to him, it will be a cakewalk for him, my guess is that he will move out of state and have some other state board take over and he's like let me out of here and i think they will be wise to do that. >> michael, thank you we will speak with you again. new details tonight in a shocking sexual assault, quick thinking from the victim of sexual assault in oakland, she used her cellphone as it video of her attacker. how this is what her roommate's says why she did not leave her home. >> take a look, this is a cellphone video of a man who
