People v. Sean Grant

On November 7, 2019, a jury found defendant Sean Grant guilty of being a felon in possession of a firearm and a felon in possession of ammunition.

On June 29, 2018, the defendant returned to his former workplace at New Karibbean Night Club in Oakland. There, he confronted a former colleague and started a physical altercation. After the altercation, the defendant told the victim "It's a wrap for you, you better stop working here." After making this threat, the defendant made a FaceTime call and asked an unknown man if he "Got that thang." Understanding "thang" to mean gun, the victim called 911. While police were on scene, the defendant returned to New Karibbean. In the car the defendant had been seen driving, police recovered a loaded pistol with an extended clip full of 33 rounds of live ammunition.

The defendant will be sentenced on January 10, 2020.

The case was prosecuted by DDA Charly Weissenbach with the assistance of Inspector Brian Delahunty.
