Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price Charges Man with Multiple Felonies for Domestic Violence

Oakland CA. October 18, 2023 – Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price charged Jose Terra with six felonies, including assault with a deadly weapon, battery with serious bodily injury, kidnapping, false imprisonment, and corporal injury to a partner. Terra was also charged for violating a court order to keep away from the victim, a misdemeanor. Appropriate enhancements were also charged. If convicted on all charges, Jose Terra could serve eight years and eight months in prison.

The investigation shows that on August 26, 2023, an in-person meeting between Terra and his estranged partner allegedly turned violent after he accused the victim of cheating on him. It is then alleged that he told the woman that he was going to kill her. Terra then allegedly punched his victim multiple times, stabbed her with a pocketknife, then brought her to his house where he held her hostage for a week. The victim eventually managed to escape.

“We have zero tolerance for domestic violence and any kind of violence in Alameda County,” said District Attorney Pamela Price. “If you are found guilty of abusing and traumatizing a partner, you will be held accountable.”
