SANTA ANA (CBSLA) – Scott Dekraai, who gunned down his ex-wife and seven other people at a Seal Beach beauty salon, was sentenced Friday to life in prison without the possibility of parole, ending a legal odyssey that sparked a sweeping probe into the misuse of informants in the Orange County jail system. Dekraai, the worst mass killer in Orange County history, originally faced the death penalty, but Orange County Superior Court Judge Thomas Goethals removed capital punishment as an option in response to the prosecutorial misconduct allegations stemming from the snitch scandal. Dekraai was given eight consecutive life sentences — one for each of his victims — plus an additional 232 years to life. #Dekraai Convicted Killer Scott Dekraai listens to impact statement at sentencing.

SANTA ANA (CBSLA.com/AP) — A judge has removed the Orange County District Attorney’s Office from the case of convicted mass killer Scott Dekraai, saying the use of jailhouse informants violated his due process rights. Judge Thomas M. Goethal on Thursday stayed the ruling until March 20 to give the district attorney a chance to appeal. If they lose their appeal, the state Attorney General’s Office would take over, though they’ve indicated they’re not in favor of the D.A.’s removal. Scott Dekraai pleaded guilty to killing his ex-wife and seven others in a 2011 shooting rampage at Salon Meritage in Seal Beach. It was the worst mass killing in Orange County’s history. The case is currently headed toward the penalty phase in which the death penalty is a possibility. Last year, Dekraai’s lawyer Scott Sanders accused prosecutors of trying to cover up a jailhouse informant program that had trained snitches to sidle up to high-profile defendants … [Read more...] about OC District Attorney’s Office Removed From Seal Beach Mass Shooting Case
