At 10:00 this morning, UC Santa Barbara’s Dept of Chicano and Chicana Studies held a Press Conference regarding the decision by the Santa Barbara District Attorney’s Office to prosecute 14-year old Ricardo Juárez as an adult. Juárez was arrested for the murder of Luis Angel Linares during an incident on State Street that city police and city officials have described as a “gang fight”.
