{ Esteban Nez } Ex-speaker's son pleads guilty to manslaughter, faces 16 years in prison
Sacramento Bee ^ | 5/5/10 | Jim Sanders

The 21-year-old son of former Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez pleaded guilty Wednesday in connection with the stabbing death of a college student on the San Diego State University campus and faces up to 16 years in prison.

In plea bargains, Esteban Núñez and co-defendant Ryan Jett, 24, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and they admitted using a knife and causing great bodily injury.

The two face maximum sentences of 16 years in prison when they are sentenced June 25 in San Diego Superior Court, the San Diego District Attorney's Office said in a written statement Wednesday.

Fabian Núñez, now a political consultant for Mercury Public Affairs, could not be reached for comment.

Wednesday's guilty pleas came one day after jury selection began on murder, assault and conspiracy charges from an October 2008 attack on four victims, including Luis Dos Santos, 22, who died from a stab wound in the chest.

Happy Cinco de Mayo to the Nunez family

Controversial decision canceling 4th of July ceremony

While serving as Speaker in 2004, Núñez made the controversial decision to not allow a 4th of July ceremony featuring a talk by retired Rear Admiral Jeremiah Denton to take place on the floor of the California State Assembly. In 1966, Denton, a Vietnam War veteran and POW, and former US Senator, was interviewed during his confinement and blinked in Morse code to spell out the word “torture.” Following his retirement from the Navy, Denton accepted a position with the Christian Broadcasting Network as consultant to his friend, CBN founder Pat Robertson, a position Denton held until 1980. Assemblyman Jay LaSuer had invited Admiral Denton to speak, but Nunez claimed that there wasn’t time for to celebrate America’s Independence Day on the floor on the Assembly. However, time was made to hold a ceremony honoring a retiring Los Angeles Times reporter on the day of the planned 4th of July ceremony. While Cinco de Mayo, St. Patrick’s Day and Chinese New Year’s had been celebrated on the State Assembly floor for several years in a row, the 4th of July had not been.

Seriously, murder gets you at most 16 years? Dear God, no wonder the Western World is coming apart at the seams.

I SMELL A FIX. THE CUMULATIVE CHARGES AND PENALTIES SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABOUT 20-30 YEARS, NOT 16. THIS WAS MURDER, NOT ASSAULT OR JUST AGGRAVATED ASSAULT.

Any bets on how long it will take to parole this kid? The murderous sob will probably be out and kill again.

It’s a strike, so he has to do 85 percent of the time. He does not get out at half time. See Calif. Penal code.

Wow, didn’t think he’s do this.

Nunez is very powerful in LA. Wonder if there is an early release deal.
