Ferguson says that prior to reaching the plea agreement Riddle-Terrell was found insane, by a well-respected Bay Area doctor, for his mental condition at the time based upon the drugs he had consumed prior to stabbing the victim. Had  there not been a plea agreement Riddle-Terrell may have only been found guilty of involuntary manslaughter which carries a four year sentence.

The Assistant DA does hope that people will realize the impact of drug use and its potentially negative outcomes.
