People v Jose Garcia Lopez

On July 1, 2014, a jury found defendant Jose Garcia Lopez guilty of felony stalking. The defendant and victim Jane Doe met when she was a waitress at a Fremont bar. Over the course of several months they developed a friendship. In April 2013, Jane Doe decided to end her friendship with defendant after a dispute. Over the course of the subsequent three weeks, the defendant repeatedly threatened and physically attacked Jane Doe and her mother. Such attacks included stealing and crashing victim's vehicle. On April 11, 2013, it was alleged that the defendant strangled Jane Doe's mother to the point she required hospitalization. The case was prosecuted by DDA Charles Wilson with the assistance of DA Inspector Paul Balzouman.
