California Man Arrested for Tying His Starving 2-Year-Old Son to a Tree

California Man Arrested for Tying His Starving 2-Year-Old Son to a Tree

Take a look at the piece of filthy human refuse above. Thanks to California's broken justice system, Jeffery Wilson may never face justice for the inhumane treatment he subjected his son to.

On Wednesday morning, the Mendocino Sheriff's Office released a statement on facebook describing Wilson's arrest and subsequent discovery of his son's living conditions:

On 07-27-2017 at approximately 3:20 P.M., Deputies from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to an ongoing complaint of transients camping at a piece of property in the 900 block of Highway 20 in Willits, California.
The property owner was the reporting party and was attempting to have illegal campers removed from her parcel.

This situation had been reported to the Sheriff’s Office multiple times and was currently under investigation when Deputies were dispatched to the same property on 07-27-2017.

Upon their arrival, Deputies contacted Jeffery Wilson in an encampment on the property. Wilson had previously been warned to clean up and vacate the area on two other dates prior to 07-27-2017.

The Deputies observed that Wilson’s son (2 years-old) was tied to a tree branch in the encampment. The rope was tied around the child’s wrist and secured to a tree branch. The child was also lacking basic food and water, was only clothed in a diaper, and was exposed to numerous hazards within the encampment.

Upon further examination, Deputies observed several weapons and other dangerous items within the reach of the child that could cause great bodily harm to the child. Based on these findings, the Deputy placed Wilson under arrest for 273a(a) PC [Felony Child Neglect / Abuse]. Wilson was also found to be in possession of a controlled substance in violation of 11377(a) HS.

During this continuing investigation, Deputies contacted the property owner who placed a citizen’s arrest on Wilson for 602(o) PC [Trespassing].

Deputies contacted Animal Control who responded to take custody of numerous animals from the encampment. Deputies also requested that a representative from Child Protective Services (CPS) respond to take custody of Wilson’s juvenile child.

Wilson was subsequently booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held in lieu of $25,000.00 bail.

As if the horrific treatment of Wilson's son wasn't bad enough, it gets worse.

Although this was not the first time Wilson had been contacted by law enforcement, it's likely this is his first arrest for child abuse.

Thanks to California's Proposition 47, a measure that reduced penalties for "non-violent" offenders, Wilson could very well be punished with a slap on the wrist.

From Capital Public Radio:

“The proponents of this measure and the California State Legislative Analyst estimates that about 10,000 convicted felons would be released from prison under Proposition 47,” said Rocklin Police Chief Ron Lawrence, representing the California Police Officers Association. “And frankly, this simply is neither a sustainable nor responsible method for reducing California’s prison population.”

Lawrence said about 80 percent of the felon inmates that might be released from prison under Prop. 47 include people with prior convictions for serious crimes such as “carjacking, armed robbery, residential burglary, and child abuse.”

But [San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón] said anyone previously convicted of murder, rape, child molestation or other felonies do not quality for early release under Prop. 47.

The cracks in Prop 47 become clear when examining Wilson's crimes — so long as he did not physically strike his son, then starving him and tying him to a tree are consider "non-violent" and therefore make him eligible for reduced penalties and early release.

California voters, you asked for this and you're getting what you wanted. Don't be surprised when men like Jeffrey Wilson come knocking at your doors, fearless in a state where the justice system has been neutered on their behalf.

Stay alert. Stay alive.
