People v Anthony Cortez McCune

One May 26, 2015, a jury convicted defendant Anthony Cortez McCune of first degree burglary and causing corporal injury to a child’s parent, both felonies. Defendant McCune was on probation for misdemeanor domestic violence incident against the same victim, a case that was also decided by a jury verdict and prosecuted by the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office.

On January 10, 2014, at around 11:40 PM, the victim was inside her apartment in San Lorenzo with her two sons, aged 6 and 9, and her mother. She heard a banging on the door and she could hear Defendant McCune, the father of the two children, yelling at her to open the door but she refused. She identified Defendant McCune through the peephole of the door, and Defendant McCune kicked in the door.

Defendant McCune entered the apartment and the victim tried to push her sons away to protect them from him. Defendant McCune started punching the victim in her face and head. The two children screamed for Defendant McCune to stop, and the 9-year-old tried to pull defendant off his mother. Defendant McCune stopped for a moment, before resuming again.

The victim's mother called the police and Defendant McCune fled. The victim was badly injured, and was bleeding profusely from her nose and face. She suffered a fractured nose, a black eye, lacerations, and bruising, and required medical treatment for the injuries Defendant McCune inflicted upon her.

The case was prosecuted by DDA Lauren Hashimoto with assistance from DA Inspectors Mike Oppido and Mark Moreno, and Victim-Witness Advocate Jenifer Mello.
