A Weaverville mother and son, both accused of causing great injury to others, both entered pleas in Trinity County Court on the same day, according to the Trinity Journal. Allana Leighton was arrested in January after her ex-boyfriend was struck by a pickup truck in Weaverville. The CHP recovered parts from the pickup at the crash scene, and then matched them to Leighton’s truck parked in her backyard. While in the backyard, officers reportedly found an illegal weapons stash in a shed, including 2 sawed-off shotguns, a sawed-off rifle, a tactical shotgun, and a “Ghost” AR-15 assault rifle with several additionally illegal modifications. While officers were removing the guns, Allana loudly asked them why they were taking her guns, thus admitting possession. Her charges include manufacturing illegal weapons, hit and run and attempted first degree murder. She pled not guilty and was denied bail because she allegedly had tried to dissuade a witness. Allana’s son, Robert Leighton, was in court the same day to plead no contest from an incident where he and two others beat up a man at a party, causing head trauma that put the man in the hospital for over a month. He also had a case pending from 2017 when a man rammed his car after dispute and Robert made criminal threats. His plea will result in a sentence of almost 3 years in prison.
