PAROLE DENIED!

PEOPLE V. GARY LEWIS COOPER - On August 21, 1993, Inmate Cooper and his accomplices murdered Filiberto Mendoza. The victim was shot in the head twice, execution style, after being lured to Stony Creek northeast of Orland. Inmate Cooper admitted he received drugs and money in exchange for murdering Filiberto Mendoza. Cooper was convicted of first-degree murder and was sentenced to 25 years to life in state prison in 1994.

Inmate Cooper was initially granted parole by the California Parole Board in October of 2015 over the objection of the Glenn County District Attorney’s Office. Shortly thereafter Inmate Cooper violated his parole and was placed back in prison in 2017.

On January 6, 2021, a 4th subsequent parole hearing was held for Inmate Cooper since being returned to state prison. The board ruled that Inmate Cooper continued to pose an unreasonable risk to public safety and denied parole. DDA Coffey attended the hearing by video conference to San Quentin State Prison to oppose Inmate Cooper’s release on behalf of the People of Glenn County. The Glenn County District Attorney’s Office thanks the family of Mr. Mendoza for the powerful letters in opposition to parole which were considered by the parole board.
