Man Sentenced to 196 Years as Teen And Released After Law Change Accused in Violent Robbery

A man who was sentenced to 196 years to life in prison for his role in a series of San Diego drive-by slayings, but was released last year due to changes to state law regarding juvenile defendants, was charged Monday with robbing and stabbing a stranger earlier this month.

Dejon Satterwhite, 31, is accused of stabbing the victim in the back on March 11 after stealing his money, according to the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office, which said the victim suffered a punctured left lung in the attack.

Satterwhite was previously convicted of two counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder for a trio of gang-related shootings he and three co-defendants committed in 2004, when Satterwhite was 15 years old.
