"The plea deal's agreed-upon sentence was that Mr. Picco receive credit for the days he spent on jail on this case, take part in a residential treatment program and be placed on two years' probation." - DA's Office

This dude had 15 felonies from before 2019

Why in the actual fuck did they do that

Its like they genuinely care criminals more

So Picco is clearly not taking part in the “restorative” part of his sentencing. Now what? When will the DA office realize that for restorative to work, it requires buy in from the offenders? When they know they get off basically scot free with zero consequences, nothing changes.

Boudin being Boudin. And his deranged extremist supporters will scream that this is proof Boudin is 'prosecuting'

What a fucking joke.

I would rather vote for the most piece of shit hard on crime republican DA for SF than to ever consider Boundin for anything remotely related to justice and crime.

I have no doubt that Chesa is proud of this restorative justice, while the rest of us wonder how much restorative justice we can afford.

At least the criminal got a 2-year probation instead of a noise violation fine. Nowadays we count that as a win.

Even if we all know the dude will be out breaking the law in no time, like he had been doing since 2002.

The San Francisco District Attorney's Office told the I-Team they filed seven counts of 2nd-degree burglary, seven counts of burglary during a state of emergency, and two counts of felony grand theft.

But most of the charges were dismissed.

Who dismisses charges?

What is the rationale for this leniency? Do they think someone who has been a professional burglar since at least 2002 is capable of being rehabilitated? This man has a 20 year career as a a burglar. It is his life's work. Why would he change?

Generally, I don't think "serial" and "lenient" belong in the same sentence, which it comes to punishing people for crimes.

Oh man bummer to see Ocean Beach Cafe as one of the victims. I stumbled into that spot while biking around the city and chatted with the owner — couldn't have been a nicer dude, and a super unique shop and product selection. Local food & drink businesses like this run on VERY thin margins and can only take a few burglaries before they run out of money and have to close.

Remember to vote folks. Elections are coming up, and not just the DA recall.
