Volunteer firefighter sentenced for arson

ADaly City parolee accused of holding hisgirlfriend under hot water to “know what thefires of hell are like” and forced her 3-year-oldson to bite her twice was sentenced Friday to40 years to life in prison.Judge Barbara Mallach denied MarcusRandel Smith, 41, a new trial and denied thedefense request to strike the prior convictionsfor the three-striker. After Smith proclaimedhis innocence in court and offered no remorsetoward his victim, Mallach said he “blamedeveryone except himself,” said DistrictAttorney Steve Wagstaffe.Maintaining his inno-cence is consistent withhis position throughoutthe case, said defenseattorney Paul DeMeester.“It’s hard so I’m veryremorseful but by the wayI’m very innocent,”DeMeester said.Wagstaffe called thesentence a good outcome for the case.DeMeester also noted that his clientreceived only 25 percent of the possible 160years to life term.Jurors deliberated six hours before convict-ing Smith of kidnapping, forced oral copula-tion, assault with a deadly weapon, falseimprisonment, making threats and misde-meanor domestic violence and assault byforce. Jurors acquitted Smith of child endan-germent.According to prosecutors, Smith attackedthe woman Feb. 24, 2012 because he ques-tioned her fidelity. Acable technician whoarrived at the home reportedly saw Smithpushing the woman around and she quietlybegged him not to leave but he did out of fear.She was ultimately able to escape to a neigh-bor’s home to call police.Before she fled, however, prosecutors told jurors Smith forced her into a bedroom toinspect her body for proof she was cheating.He also assaulted her and made the boy bite hertwice, according to the prosecution, althoughDeMeester said the jury’s acquittal discreditedthat allegation. He threatened to kill her andforced her under hot water while saying it rep-resented the fires of hell before he sexuallyassaulted her. He also reportedly brandished abaseball bat and threatened to kill her, accord-ing to prosecutors.Smith’s prior convictions are makingfelony threats and abusing a previous girl-friend.
