A second San Francisco Sheriff's Deputy was facing criminal charges Wednesday night after she was accused of attacking a woman.
It began with a confrontation last month between neighbors on this block of San Bruno Ave in San Francisco's Visitacion Valley.
As of Wednesday, 36 year-old sheriff's deputy Manconia Green was facing six misdemeanor charges, including criminal threats exhibiting a firearm possession of a deadly weapon and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.
“Really the only thing she did wrong in this incident is she lost the race to dial 9-1-1,” said criminal defense attorney Harry Stern.
Stern, who was representing Green as her attorney, told KTVU Wednesday that Green was simply trying to defend her sister in a financial dispute with a neighbor.
“She's greeted with a vicious dog, a golf club and a bunch of swear words. And really all she did was back off, say, 'Hey, by the way, I'm a deputy sheriff, identify yourself,'" said Stern.
In a court hearing yesterday, prosecutors said green pulled out a personal firearm during the dispute. They refused to discuss the case Wednesday.
She's since been assigned to administrative duty including work at this training facility.
Green isn't the only deputy facing trial these days.
Police say Deputy Philip Tong allegedly robbed a San Francisco bank earlier in November.
"It's my job to ensure that she does get a fair hearing and that the allegations against her are judged on their own merit,” said Stern.
Green was set for a pretrial conference on Dec. 4, though prosecutors have indicated they hope to reach a plea deal before it goes to trial.
