Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: CA   USA   Sat. Aug. 21, 1971
Summary: Officer Paul Krasenes, Officer Jere Graham, and Officer Frank DeLeon were shot and slashed to death during a prison uprising when a civil rights lawyer smuggled a 9 mm pistol and two clips of ammunition to a prisoner at San Quentin Prison. The prisoner hid the pistol and magazines in his afro wig. When one of the guards became suspicious of the wig the prisoner ripped it off, loaded the handgun, and then held the guards at bay.

The prisoner forced the guards to free 26 inmates, who then proceeded to attack the guards. They slashed the throats of six guards and also shot three of them to death. All of the guards bodies were then stacked in the cell of the inmate who started the disturbance. Two jail trustees were also murdered by the prisoners.

The prisoner who started the uprising was shot and killed by responding officers. He was awaiting trial for the murder of Correctional Officer John V. Mills at Soledad Prison on January 16, 1970.

Six prisoners were charged with the officer's murders. After a 16 month trial only one was convicted of murder. He was paroled in 1988. Three were acquitted and the other two were found guilty of assault. Only one remains in prison. He murdered Correctional Officer Robert J. McCarthy on March 4, 1971. He will be eligible for parole in 2024.

Officer Krasenes had served with the agency for 8 yea
