Max Wade verdict announced

Riley Overend


After only one day of deliberation, the jury in the Max Wade trial returned guilty verdicts on four of the six charges against Wade, including stealing a Lamborghini belonging to celebrity chef Guy Fieri and attempted murder.

Although Wade, 19, committed the crimes as a minor, he was tried as an adult, and could face 20 years to life in prison.

Wade, a former Redwood student, was found guilty of the attempted murder of Landon Wahlstrom, 19, during a Mill Valley drive-by shooting last April. However, Wade was acquitted on a second attempted murder charge, this one of Eva Dedier, 18. Dedier was in the passenger seat of Wahlstrom’s car during the shooting.

Despite being charged with auto theft and possession of a stolen vehicle, Wade was acquitted on a burglary charge.

The sentencing will occur in December.
