A 48-year-old Vista man who admitted drunkenly evading pursuing officers by driving recklessly, and resisting police officers “with force,” hopes to be sentenced to nine months in county jail, according to his plea deal paperwork, signed yesterday (August 3 ) in the Vista courthouse.

His public defender, Daniel Segura, acknowledged that Feggin Christopher Conners could have gotten up to 3 years and 8 months in prison, if he had been convicted of all the charges, most of which were dropped in the plea deal. Oceanside police claimed that Conners rammed an occupied patrol car two weeks ago, about 2 a.m. on July 20, after officers deployed a spike strip which partially disabled the Toyota sedan Conner was driving.

Officers first noticed Conners when he was driving down South Coast Highway, straddling two lanes and talking on the cell phone early that Wednesday morning, according to Lieutenant Leonard Mata. The offending vehicle “failed to stop,” and a pursuit began, according to police.

Two counts of felony assault with a deadly weapon on police officers, unlicensed driver, and open container, were some of the charges dropped in the plea deal.

Judge Daniel Goldstein, who signed off on the plea deal, will sentence Conners on August 31.

Whoo, he was facing a felony assault with a deadly weapon upon police and other charges and now he's going to get a nine month sentence (in county jail of course). Hey, if I ever get arrested, I want this dude Segura, unshaven and all! (Just wondering why his pic makes the post, but a pic of the perp doesn't. Just wondering.)

Another example of the tough on crime policies of our DA, the esteemed Bahnee.

====================== 9 months is a joke for this many charges, all serious felonies.

The judge should have never allowed such a light sentence on such serious charges.

Don't have a photo of the perp. San Diego County Sheriff, who controls the jails, will not release booking photos to media upon request. We have to get photos in other ways. Sheriff describes Feggin Conners as Black Male, 5'7" and 180 pounds. Defender Segura has a soft-spoken style, which serves him well, and he is very experienced.
