A Tracy man was sentenced to 25 years in state prison after pleading no contest to charges of attempted murder Wednesday, March 20, San Joaquin County Superior Court in Stockton.

Marcus Rogokos, 31, pleaded no contest to two counts of attempted murder with an enhancement of intentional and personal discharge of a firearm.

Superior Court Judge Franklin Stephenson sentenced Rogokos to 25 years in prison the day the plea was entered.

According to police, Rogokos fired a handgun into the am-pm store at 2430 Joe Pombo Parkway in Tracy around 8:40 a.m. Jan. 13, 2012.

Tracy Police Department officers went to the store after a man identifying himself as the store clerk said a man in a red Honda had shot out his business window.

Tracy police officers arrested Rogokos a few hours later during a traffic stop.

The prosecutor in the case, Ron Indran, said it was his “legal and moral obligation” to lock up Rogokos for as long as possible.

“He had a list of people he wanted to kill because they had offended him at one time or another,” Indran said. “If they let him out, at some point he’s going to hurt someone.”

Bye, bye, you POS. Fortunately for you and other criminals you were convicted in CA, will serve time in CA, and therefor will probably be released in a few years when the state files bankruptcy or some liberal judge or politician decides it's inhumane and unfair to incarcerate the dregs of our society.

I'm sure there's some proud parents & relatives who will show up saying what a good person the miscreant is and how none of us understand his trials & tribulations.
