Abstract (Document Summary)

"In my judgment, the defendant wrote his own punishment at the time he drove that car over the curb on Westwood Boulevard," Santa Monica Superior Court Judge Jacqueline L. Weiss said as she sentenced Young. "My object is to impose the maximum sentence allowed by law, so as to ensure that Danny [Daniel Lee Young] never walks-or drives-our streets again."

Young's brother, Larry, 25, along with his mother, Lula, watched Friday's sentencing from the back of the courtroom. Later, Larry Young blamed the Westwood tragedy on a system of mental health care that, he said, was unable to deal with his brother's problems.

Lula Young told the probation officer that her son had been classified as a slow learner since the first grade, but that his personality did not begin to deteriorate until three years ago, when he began having violent arguments with his siblings but had no memory of them the next day. Lula Young told [Barbara Gerlach] that her efforts to get help for her son were unsuccessful.
