Cameron Brown 3rd Trial, People's 1101b Motion

Exclusive T&T case coverage can be found HERE.
 Lauren Sarene Key, 4
Cameron Brown is alleged to have thrown Lauren off of 
Inspiration Point, a 120ft cliff, on November 8, 2000.

March 11, 2015
Cameron Brown has been in the Los Angeles County Men's Central Jail custody since November 16, 2003. He was denied bail.

I obtained a copy of the People's 1101b Motion to admit other crimes/acts of the defendant. There is a hearing tomorrow on the people's motion as well as defense motions. If I am able, I will get copies of the defense motions that were filed.

Here's a question I've had for some time. Is Cameron Brown holding out for a plea deal which has him released with time served?

Sprocket said...

It's possible, but I don't know Brown's thought process.

I'm not positive, but I believe at the end of the second trial, the defense pushed for a plea to involuntary manslaughter. The maximum on that is 4 years.

That was in 2009 and no deal was made.

Seems unlikely to me that Brown would plead anything. There was a civil trial several years ago in which Brown was found liable for wrongful death and his liability insurance paid a substantial judgment. Under such circumstances, were he to plead guilty to any wrongdoing connected with this event - or be convicted for that matter - he'd owe that money back to the insurer.

I'm not sure that's exactly correct.

My impression was, the victim's mother sued the city of Rancho Palos Verdes, not Cameron Brown.

I don't know that Brown had personal liability insurance at the time of Lauren's death. It's my understanding that his new wife owned property, but Brown did not.
