LUCINDA MOYERS SCHEDULED FOR ARRAIGNMENT ON MONDAY AUGUST 1, 2011

SAN FRANCISCO – San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón announced today that the arraignment of Lucinda Moyers (CTN: 11019878) was put over until Monday, August 1, 2011 at 9 am PDT in Department 12 of San Francisco Superior Court.

Having been charged on July 27, 2011 with one felony count of first degree burglary in violation of California Penal Code section 459 and one felony count of possession of stolen property in violation of Penal Code section 496(a), defendant Moyers appeared in Department 12 of San Francisco Superior Court on Thursday, July 28, 2011 before the Honorable Jeffrey Ross for arraignment. However, the matter was put over until Monday, August 1, 2011 at 9 am in Department 12 for assignment of defense counsel.

During the Thursday, July 28, 2011 proceedings Judge Ross granted the District Attorney’s Office’s request for a stay away order which requires the defendant to keep at least 150 yards away from the two named victims in the case. Judge Ross also ordered bail set without prejudice in the scheduled amount of $625,000 as requested by the prosecution. The bail amount reflects the fact that two strike priors were charged for two prior convictions sustained by the defendant in 1990 and 1991 out of San Francisco. Both convictions were for residential burglary and resulted in state prison commitments for the defendant. The San Francisco District Attorney’s Office will conduct its standard review of three-strikes cases to determine if the newly charged, pending case will be prosecuted as a third strike offense.

According to court documents, the defendant was arrested on July 26, 2011 in San Francisco for allegedly entering an occupied San Francisco hotel room without authorization and taking the property of the individuals who were staying in the room, Alex and Jean Trebek.

The arrest of defendant Moyers is the result of an investigation led by San Francisco Police Inspector Garrity of the Criminal Investigations Unit. Assistant District Attorney Michael Maffei is the prosecutor assigned to the case.
