    A judge today refused to overturn former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's commutation of the prison term of one-time Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez' son, Esteban Núñez, who is serving time on a voluntary manslaughter conviction. Sacramento Superior Court Judge Lloyd G. Connelly characterized as "repugnant" Schwarzenegger's decision to cut Esteban Núñez' prison term from 16 years to seven. Schwarzenegger issued the commutation as one of the final acts of his administration in January 2011. But even though Connelly said he believed the commutation was an abuse, he said it was still an authority the governor had under his executive powers.

    The Marlins on Wednesday placed closer Leo Nunez on the restricted list so he could return to his native Dominican Republic to clear up a few things. Namely, his name. A league source initially said Nunez was not missing the Marlins’ final six games as a result of improper conduct. Later, the source confirmed Nunez’s premature departure was the result of an immigration issue.

    SAN DIEGO -- San Diego County prosecutors asked a state court Wednesday to overturn former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's last-minute decision to slash the prison sentence for the son of former Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez, his friend and political ally. The civil lawsuit filed in San Diego County Superior Court is the latest fallout from the Republican governor's decision, which angered prosecutors, the victim's family and other Republicans. A day before his term ended in January, Schwarzenegger cut by more than half the sentence for Esteban Nunez, to 7 years from 16 years. The younger Nunez pleaded guilty in the 2008...

    Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger sat down with Newsweek recently for one of the most extensive interviews since his January exit from office. Schwarzenegger addresses everything from criticisms of one of his final acts as the state's chief executive to his own body image in his post-bodybuilding days, saying the effect of aging on his 63-year-old physique makes him "feel sh--y when I look at myself in the mirror." Below are some excerpts from the more than 2,500-word piece. Read the full article at this link. On controversy surrounding his 11th hour decision to reduce the prison sentence for the son...

    Arnold Schwarzeneger has admitted that his controversial decision to commute a jail term for a killer on his last day as governor of California was ‘to help a friend’. In an flippant outburst Schwarzenegger said that he ‘felt good’ about cutting nine years off the 16-year sentence for Esteban Nuñez, 20, even though it was a favour to his political ally father. He said he refused to apologise for his actions - and arrogantly mocked anyone who mistakenly believed his motives had been altruistic.

    The father of a young man who was killed in a fight involving the son of former Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez said Wednesday he is upset about a letter former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger sent him after reducing the younger Núñez's prison sentence. On Jan. 2, his last day in office, Schwarzenegger cut the prison sentence of Esteban Núñez from 16 years to seven. He didn't contact the Santos family to seek their opinions before he issued his order. On Saturday, Fred Santos, the victim's father, said a letter from Schwarzenegger arrived at his home "out of the blue." The letter,...

    In his last remaining hours as California governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger issued three sentence commutations. The most notable went to the son of former Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez, Esteban Núñez, who is serving time for voluntary manslaughter. Núñez's legal problems began in San Diego on Oct. 4, 2008. After Núñez, then 19, and some friends were not admitted to a fraternity party, they went looking for a fight. They found a group of students who also had been drinking. After a short but fatal clash, Luis Dos Santos, 22, lay dying. Schwarzenegger wrote that he reduced Núñez's sentence from 16 years...

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger decision to commute the prison sentence for the son of former Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez has outraged some of the outgoing governor's critics, including a victim's father. On his last day in office, Schwarzenegger shortened Esteban Nunez's sentence to seven years, saying he thought the 16-year sentence was excessive. The move came just hours before Schwarzenegger left office. Nunez pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and assault with a deadly weapon for his role in a fight that killed 22-year-old Luis Santos near San Diego State University in 2008. The victim's father called the decision ridiculous and politically...

    Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's decision to reduce the prison sentence of a former Assembly speaker's son sparked outrage Monday, from the district attorney who prosecuted Esteban Núñez to local families whose loved ones are spending more time in prison – for lesser crimes. "We were shocked to hear of the governor's last-minute commutation, which greatly diminishes justice for victim Luis Santos and re-victimizes his family and friends," San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis said in a prepared statement. She said her office was not consulted about the sentence reduction, in which Núñez's prison term was cut from 16 years...

Schwarzenegger announced the moves in a batch of eleventh-hour press releases e-mailed to reporters. Esteban Nuñez, now 21, was sentenced to 16 years in prison for his role in the stabbing death of Luis Santos. Schwarzenegger cut the...

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, just hours before leaving the governor’s office, shaved nine years off the combined 16-year sentence of Esteban Nunez, the son of former Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez. The younger Nunez was one of three young men charged in a knife fight near San Diego State University in October 2008, in which Luis Dos Santos was stabbed to death. The man who wielded the knife in the fatal attack, Ryan Jett, entered a plea agreement with prosecutors and was sentenced to state prison. Esteban Nunez wielded a knife that injured another participant in the fight. He pleaded guilty to...

    Outgoing Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has commuted the prison sentence of the son of a former state Assembly speaker, cutting his sentence from 16 years to 7 years in the 2008 killing of a Concord man. The move came just hours before Schwarzenegger was to leave office. In 2009, Esteban Nuñez, son of Fabian Nuñez, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the fatal stabbing of Luis Dos Santos, 22, during a fight in San Diego. He and co-defendant Ryan Jett were sentenced to 16 years in prison, the maximum sentence. Santos, who was attending San Diego Mesa College, was killed in...

    Dozens of California Assembly employees can thank the state's fiscal crisis for padding their pensions through a controversial program pushed by Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez before he was termed out last year. Fifty-five Assembly employees received "golden handshakes" that can be worth thousands annually by awarding two years of extra service credits for retiring by last month, records show. Recipients included nine aides to Núñez – eight of whose salaries exceeded $90,000 per year. Prominent retirees included Danny Eaton and Steve Maviglio, who left jobs paying $212,000 and $175,000, respectively, the former as Núñez's chief of staff and the latter...
