UPDATE, APRIL 15, 10:43 A.M: After accusing his ex-girlfriend of cheating and violently holding her against her will at gunpoint in her apartment, 27-year-old Sean Paul Delacerda has been convicted of assault with a firearm.

But the Fullerton resident, who faces up to 18 years in prison after his June 3 sentencing, is also guilty of posing for the ugliest police mug shot of the week. Perhaps he aped the dead-behind-the-eyes look from perps he dragged before the camera as a Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy.

A four-year veteran of LASD at the time of the crime, Delacerda was found guilty by a jury on Thursday of one felony count each of assault with a firearm, kidnapping, false imprisonment by violence and one misdemeanor count of domestic violence battery.

Nearly a year ago to the day, he broke into the home of his ex-girlfriend--who he had previously dated for two months--who was not home. When she arrived around 4 p.m., he asked where she had been and accused of her cheating before he whipped out a firearm and loading a bullet in the cylinder.

Scared, the woman tried to run to the front door, but Delacerda chased her, grabbed her by both arms, and kept her inside. He then dragged her to her computer and forced her to open her e-mail so that he could read them.

While Delarcerda was reading the e-mails, she again tried to flee out the front door, but he tackled her to the ground, climbed on top of her, covered her mouth to silence her screams, took out the gun, pointed it at his mouth and pulled the trigger.

The firearm clicked but did not fire.

Still lying on top of his ex-, Delacreda pointed the gun at her before dragging her into her bedroom and stuffing her into her closet. He then returned to the computer to read e-mails, which allowed the woman to finally break free and escape her apartment.

After she got in her car to drive off, Delacerda appeared, tried to open her locked car door and banged on her window. He jumped on the hood of her car and chased after her as she drove away.

The woman called 911 from her car, and the deputy was arrested shortly thereafter near her home. 

During the trial, Delacerda admitted breaking into the victim's home, loading one bullet into his firearm and waiting 11 hours for her to return.

He denied assaulting his former girlfriend.

The jury didn't buy it.

FULLERTON - A deputy with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department was charged this week with assaulting an ex-girlfriend with a firearm after accusing her of cheating and violently holding her against her will at gunpoint in her apartment. Sean Paul Delacerda, 26, Fullerton, was charged Tuesday, April 20, 2010, with one felony count each of assault with a firearm, kidnapping, false imprisonment by violence, and one misdemeanor count of domestic violence battery.

On April 18, 2010, Delacerda is accused of entering the home of his ex-girlfriend, Jane Doe, whom he had dated for two months, without the victim's permission. The victim was not home. When Jane Doe arrived home at approximately 4:00 p.m., the defendant is accused of asking where she had been and accusing of her cheating. He is accused of pulling out a firearm and loading one bullet into the cylinder. Jane Doe became scared and tried to run to the front door, but Delacerda is accused of chasing her, grabbing her by both arms, and keeping her inside.

When Delarcerda was reading the e-mails, Jane Doe again tried to run to the front door to escape. The defendant is accused of chasing after her, tackling her to the ground, and climbing on top of her. He is accused of covering the victim's mouth as she screamed. Delarcerda is accused of taking the firearm with one bullet, pointing it in his mouth, and pulling the trigger while still on top of the victim. The firearm clicked but did not fire. The defendant is accused of then pointing the firearm at Jane Doe.

After pointing his firearm at the victim, Delarcerda is accused of dragging Jane Doe to her bedroom and pushing her in a closet. He is accused of returning to her computer to continue reading her e-mails. While the defendant was distracted, Jane Doe was finally able to run outside and get into her car.

Delacerda is accused of running after the victim, trying to open her locked car door, and banging on her window. He is accused of jumping on the hood of her car as she reversed and chasing after her as she drove away. Jane Doe called 9-1-1 from her car and the defendant was arrested shortly thereafter leaving the area of the victim's home.

And you actually think the OCDA is not corrupt? Of course the case is filled with lies and misleading facts and sloppy investigation. I am absolutely sick law enforcement corruption it makes me want to vomit. If the general public knew how corrupt the OCDA and other disctrict attorney offices are they would be sick. The LA times just published an article 3 weeks ago how the Feds investigated the LA District Attorneys office and found in dozens of cases put forth by the LADA they were filled with misleading facts, false testimony and untrue statements. SO, once again folks wake up

I've known Sean for many years, and never seen him get angry or lose his cool. He himself, has been there for me anytime I was in need for someone to talk to, especially when my father past away.The whole case itself is BS filled by lies. There were no witness that a crime was ever committed, neighbors were never question or interviewed. Look at a mug shot people DO YOU SEE ANY SCRATCHES ON THE FACE OR NECK AREA? Come on ladies wouldn't you think that if you were attacked and held against your will wouldn't you try everything to escape such as going after the face? THINK ABOUT IT PEOPLE?? the Jury itself were fooled by the fabricated story of the The ex-girlfriend, and made their decision based on emotions (falling for her crying, and fake sob story) rather than the facts/evidence of the case. All I say is Karma is bitch, because a good innocent cop is place behind bars for a crime he never committed.

I have a question for the editor of this rag as well as the general public. At what point do we say enough is enough and really do something about corrupt cops?

At least 2 to 3 times weekly various rank and file police officers around So California and Orange County are arrested, convicted or charged with crimes. So at what point does it become not acceptable anymore???

This is a very serious problem and goes a lot further than just the mere arrest or convictions of Police Officers.

Police testify and file false reports all the time with various courts and District Attorney offices. So when you sit and listen to the testimony of these officers when do we quit given them the assumption that they always tell the truth and are honorable???

The courts know just like we do the level of bad cops arrested and fired and prosecuted. So when do we really sit back and question the integrity of what a Police Officer says and reports on offical reports???

We better damn well do something about this and quick
