News, Man sentenced to probation, time served in Walk of Fame attack on transgender women : detailed suggestions and opinions about Man sentenced to probation, time served in Walk of Fame attack on transgender women .
A Compton man pleaded no contest last month to theft and assault charges in connection with a 2020 attack on a group of transgender women along the Hollywood Walk of Fame that sparked outrage in the city’s LGBTQ community, authorities said.
Carlton Callaway, 31, was sentenced to one year in jail and probation and ordered to undergo mental health treatment for the August 2020 attack, according to Los Angeles County Deputy Dist. Atty. Richard Ceballos.
Since Callaway, who is currently out of custody, spent more than a year in county jail while waiting for his case to be resolved, he will remain free under the terms of his probation, Ceballos said.
Ceballos said Callaway also pleaded no contest to a hate crime allegation. Police had claimed he made derogatory comments about the victims’ gender during the assault.
