Santa Rosa Man Sentenced to 22 Years for Attempted Murder

Santa Rosa, CA  –  December 20, 2016  –  

Defendant, Ronnie Paul Threadgill, 24-years-old of Santa Rosa, was sentenced today to 22 years in state prison by the Honorable Jaime Thislethwaite after having pleaded no-contest in November to charges of attempted murder causing paralysis with a firearm, and attempted robbery.  

District Attorney Ravitch stated, “This was a senseless crime by a selfish man.  The lives of the victim and her family are forever impacted, and the defendant has only himself to blame for his future.”     

The charges resulted from an incident on July 10th, 2015 when the defendant robbed his victim at gunpoint during an act of prostitution.  The defendant took $190 from the victim and as she attempted to flee the room, he shot her in the leg and the back of the neck.  As a result of the gunshot wounds the victim was rendered quadriplegic.    

The case was prosecuted by Chief Deputy District Attorney Spencer Brady and Deputy District Attorney Emily Malfatti, assisted by District Attorney Investigators Tim Dempsey and Kris AllenRohnert Park Public Safety Department headed the investigation.
