Homeless veteran moved to treatment facility

A homeless veteran who pleaded guilty to false imprisonment of his girlfriend has been allowed to leave jail and live in a treatment facility.

Mark David Dabrowski, 55, was sentenced to a year in jail on terms of three years probation by El Cajon Superior Court Judge Daniel Goldstein, who authorized Dabrowski leaving jail after serving 180 days with jail credits. He was fined $1,514 and must abide by a 10-year restraining order banning contact with the victim from the July 17 incident in El Cajon. A woman was kidnapped by Dabrowski in the 500 block of W. Madison Avenue near Johnson Elementary School.

Dabrowski also pleaded guilty to making a criminal threat and inflicting corporal injury upon his girlfriend. A kidnapping charge was dropped.

A prosecutor said Dabrowski was allowed to live in Veterans Villages of San Diego, a group that assists homeless veterans with substance or mental health issues. It also provides housing, job training, food, and clothing.  Dabrowski was ordered to pay $1,433 in probation costs.

Trial set for attempted murder at Campo Indian Reservation

A Jan. 30, 2018 trial has been set for Reid Valentino Wohlford, 20, who has been ordered to stand trial for attempted murder, assault, and torture of his ex-girlfriend who was shot in the leg at the Campo Indian Reservation.

Two sheriff’s detectives and a patrol deputy testified about what Wohlford’s ex-girlfriend told them about the Feb. 4 incident. She did not testify. The 23-year-old woman had very severe injuries that included stab wounds and attempted strangulation, said Deputy District Attorney Jessica Paugh. She was hospitalized.

Wohlford was also ordered to stand trial for making a criminal threat to her, assault with a deadly weapon, and domestic violence. El Cajon Superior Court Judge John Thompson ordered him to stand trial on all charges in a preliminary hearing.

Another hearing was held by Judge Roger Krauel concerning an earlier case in which Wohlford had a warrant outstanding for his arrest in 2016.

Someone called 911 at 4:12 a.m. on Feb. 16, 2016 from a house in Boulevard. Sheriff’s deputies responded, but no one came to the door.

Deputies called out for someone to exit and Wohlford ran out of the house, waving a shovel and screaming, according to deputies. He threw a big metal pipe at one deputy and charged a deputy with a shovel over his head, said Deputy District Attorney Will Watkins.

One deputy, a 30-year veteran, fired a shot which missed. They arrested him, but Wohlford posted bond and then failed to show up again in court.

Two deputies at the scene testified and Krauel ordered Wohlford to stand trial for two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and failure to appear in court.

Wohlford had a $150,000 warrant that was outstanding when he was booked for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend.

Wohlford has pleaded not guilty. He remains in jail on $2 million bail.

His father is Darrell Norman Wohlford, 39, who is serving a 17-year term for armed residential burglary of the house of Christalina Leona Indish, 35, who was stabbed to death on the Campo Indian Reservation on Feb. 27, 2016. A murder charge was filed against Darrell Wohlford, but dismissed after he pleaded guilty to armed residential burglary.

Darrell Wohlford liked to set up fights between women and was suspected of arranging the fight between Indish and his current girlfriend, Cindy Marie Ceballos, 31, whom a jury convicted of first-degree murder on May 25.

Ceballos was sentenced July 27 to 25 years to life in prison.
