Title
MICHAEL PRESLEY
Subject
Special 1 Motion - On July 15, 2007, 19-year old Michael Presley was fatally shot in front of an apartment building at 4565 West Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. According to the Los Angeles Police Department, Mr. Presley, who was a full-time student at California State University Northridge, was talking with friends when one to three suspects drove up and fired several gunshots at his friends. Michael Presley was shot and died as a result of his wounds. The person or persons responsible for this crime represent an ongoing threat to the safety of the people of Los Angeles; therefore it is appropriate for the City of Los Angeles to offer a reward for information leading to the identification, apprehension and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the death of Michael Presley. THEREFORE MOVE that the Council determine, as provided in Section 54954.2(b)(2) of the Government Code, and pursuant to Rule 23 of the Rules of the City Council, that there is a need to take immediate action on this matter AND that the need for action came to the attention of the City Council subsequent to the posting of the agenda for today's Council meeting. FURTHER MOVE that by adoption of this Motion, the City Council provide an offer of reward for information leading to the identification, apprehension, and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the death of Michael Presley on July 15, 2007, and in support thereof, make the following findings pursuant to Division 19, Chapter 12, Article 1 of the Los Angeles Administrative Code: 1. That the death of Michael Presley was caused by the willful misconduct of one or more persons. 2. That this offer of reward is consistent with and taken for the immediate protection of the public peace, health and safety of local residents, as well as visitors to the City, and is consistent with the need to arrest and convict the person or persons who, because of not being apprehended, could by their actions further terrorize and present a continuing and immediate menace to the people in the City. 3. That what happened to Michael Presley, is an especially disturbing crime and therefore, as a matter of public policy, the City hereby offers a reward as an added inducement for persons to come forward with information leading to the identification, apprehension and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the death of Michael Presley. 4. That the sum of $50,000 shall be the aggregate maximum sum of any payment or payments of a City reward in this instance. 5. That the offer of reward shall be in effect for sixty days from the date of the advertisement of the reward by the City Clerk. FURTHER MOVE that the City Clerk be directed to cause notices and/or advertisements to be duly published according to the requirements of Division 19, Chapter 12, Article 1 of the Los Angeles Administrative Code, and to thereby cause the offer of reward to become effective.
