Janesville Man Convicted for Resisting Arrest

A 39-year-old Janesville man has been convicted for one felony and two misdemeanor counts for resisting arrest when Lassen County Sheriff Deputies responded to a disturbance. Brandon Michael Gress was an active parolee at the time of his resistance.

His crime carried a punishment of up to 3 years in county jail. However, Gress carried a previous strike and faces time in state prison for up to 6 years. The misdemeanor counts have terms of up to 1 year each.

Gress is scheduled for sentencing on December 20th.

Deputy District attorney Ross Helmbold tried the case, and Gress was convicted by a jury last week.
