It’ll be 7 years in state prison for 21 year old Francisco Fisher of Las Vegas.
It could have been worse.
If his case had gone to trial and he was convicted of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon, Fisher could have been locked up for 11 years.
Instead he’ll be back on the streets by the time he is 28.
Fisher was renting an Airbnb property on Tachevah Road in Cathedral City on January 21st 2020, with 3 other people, all of them in town for a work conference.
But police were called to investigate a scuffle and found Fisher being held down by the other 3 men, after Fisher had attacked one of those men with a knife. There were puddles of blood in the bedroom of the house.
The victim sustained stab wounds to his head and back.
Fisher copped a plea bargain to a charge of assault with a deadly weapon. The attempted murder charge was dropped, hence the shorter prison term of just 7 years.
74 year old Wayne Boyd of Sky Valley will have plenty of time over the next two years to think about his NCAA collegiate wrestling championships.
He’s been sentenced to 2 years in state prison for assaulting and threatening and raping a woman who worked for him and lived with him at his ranch in Sky Valley in the springs of 2016.
That woman, and her female friend who was visiting, were also attacked in September 2016, as they attempted to leave Boyd’s ranch.
Boyd’s attorney had asked for a new trial but the judge denied that request and gave Boyd the light sentence of just 2 years in prison based on Boyd’s age.
He has no other criminal convictions.
Empty Prison Cell.
