Angelo Mendoza Sr.
Man who bit out son’s eye found not guilty by reason of insanity:
Angelo Mendoza Sr. is the wheelchair bound man from Bakersfield, California who in a fit of PCP induced rage bit his son’s eyes so badly that he actually ate one of the eyes and badly damaged the other. His son is 4-year-old Angelo Mendoza Jr.
Mendoza Sr. was previously found mentally competent to stand trial. Last week he even pleaded guilty to the charges against him. Apparently a judge was not convinced of his mental competence and even after the guilty pleas the judge found Mendoza Sr. not guilty by reason of insanity.
This means that Mendoza Sr. could spend the rest of his life in a mental facility but it could also mean that he could be out in a few years. Meanwhile Angelo Mendoza Jr. will be disfigured and partially blind for the rest of his life while dear old dad will have three hots and a cot in someplace that isn’t prison.
That judge should be removed the bench and disbarred. And ‘they’ should gouge out Mendoza Sr.’s eyes with a soldering iron.
Angelo Mendoza Sr.
Man again faces trial for allegedly biting son’s eye:
One of, if not the, worst stories I’ve ever posted on this site was the story of the two Angelo Mendozas from Bakersfield, California.
If you’ll recall Angelo Mendoza Sr. ‘allegedly’ bit the eyes of his then 4-year-old son Angelo Mendoza Jr. in a PCP fueled rage. Mendoza Sr. bit his son so hard that he bit one of his eyes out and took a big chunk of muscle with it. Mendoza Sr. is said to have actually eaten one of his own son’s eyes. The other eye was so badly damaged they thought that Angelo Jr. might never be able to see out of that eye again. Partial sight has since returned to that eye.
Previously Mendoza Sr. was ruled mentally incompetent to stand trial. Now after a stay at a mental facility a judge has ruled that Mendoza is now mentally competent to stand trial.
Of course he’s pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. I don’t think insanity and high on PCP is considered as the same thing.
Too bad he can’t receive the death penalty. I would love to know that they jammed the death needle in his eye instead of his arm.
Dad who ate eyes found mentally incompetent:
Angelo Mendoza, the man accused of eating the eye of his 4-year-son Angelo Jr., has been ruled mentally incompetent to stand trial.
The next step will be to see if he’ll be put in a county or state mental facility.
If Mendoza is legitimately nuts then they need to bring back asylums for the criminally insane and not these touchy feely places that they have now.
Doctor says man who allegedly bit out sons eye not competent to stand trial, judge orders second opinion:
The headline kind of says it all doesn’t it?
This past week a psychiatrist testified that Angelo Mendoza is not competent enough to stand trial. Mendoza, as you’ll recall, is accused of blinding his 4-year-old son, Angelo Mendoza Jr., by biting his eyes out in an alleged PCP fueled rampage.
The prosecution requested a second opinion since the issue at hand was his non-psychitaric meds and judge ordered that it be done.
Mendoza returns to court in late August after the next evaluation.
Angelo can see!:
Here’s some good news on this site for once.
Angelo Mendoza Jr. of Bakersfield, California has regained partial site in his remaining eye and it’s expected to improve.
As I’m sure most of you recall Angelo had one of his eyes bitten out by his father, Angelo Mendoza, during an alleged PCP fueled assault on his 4-year-old son.
Father Accused Of Eating Child’s Eyes Out:
While allegedly high on PCP 34-year-old Angelo Mendoza of Bakersfield, California bit out the eye of his 4-year-son Angelo Jr. and ate it. Mendoza also bit his son’s other eye to the point of where it is now inoperable. Doctors said that the left aye and the muscle surrounding it were completely gone.
Mendoza is being held on $1M bail.
Why why why do people still insist on doing drugs when they have kids? Since I grew out of using drugs I guess I’ll never understand.
