    Hell,him and his appointed Lawyer will work the court system and get the charges pled down to next to nothing.
    With Bencoma,look what he was able to do and get away with for most of his life of crime and victims in his wake
    It took an armed confrontation with Law Enforcement and shots fired to finally get him his serious prison time.
    And even then,appeal after appeal… this day….trying to get him out and back on the streets of Bishop.

    Good job by ICSO getting these weapons and devices off the streets of Inyo County..
    Makes you wonder what this convicted ex-felon had planned with all these weapons and illegal explosive objects….and where he got them from.
