A Hispanic honors student is accused of using a stolen gun to pistol-whip, then threaten her mother in order to get a sports car

On March 24, 2011 17-year-old Rachel Hachero called her mother from a car dealership and asked her to co-sign a loan for a vehicle. When Rachel's mother Linda Hachero refused, Rachel threatened to kill her. When Rachel arrived at their home she confronted her mother with a 9 mm. She struck her mom in the head with the gun. Then, Rachel pointed the gun at her mother's head and told her they were going to the car dealership and demanded she co-sign for the car. Rachel and her mother went to Sutherlin Nissan, where her mother signed for the car. Rachel left in the 2004 black Nissan 350Z. After contacting deputies and reporting the incident the following day, Linda told deputies she didn't want to prosecute her daughter because she is an honors student who has been accepted to several Ivy League colleges on scholarships. Despite signing a waiver of prosecution, the deputy said there was probable cause to arrest Rachel for aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony, one count of battery touch or strike and possession of a firearm by a person under the age of 18. A check of the gun's serial number revealed it was stolen from a Lee County Port Authority Law Enforcement officer in early July 2010.
