Judge Lloyd Connelly called Schwarzenegger’s
Judge Lloyd Connelly called Schwarzenegger’s louis vuitton outlet decision to reduce Esteban Nunez’s sentence from 16 years to seven years distasteful and ‘‘repugnant to the bulk of the citizenry of this state,’’ but within his executive powers as governor. Nunez is the son of the governor’s onetime political ally, former Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez. Esteban Nunez pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in a 2008 attack on an unarmed group of young men after he and some friends were turned away from a fraternity party in San Diego. Three others pleaded guilty to various charges in the attack that killed 22-year-old college student Luis Santos. Santos’ family and the authentic louis vuitton San Diego district attorney sued, claiming that Schwarzenegger violated the voter-approved Marsy’s Law, which requires families be notified about cases involving their loved ones. ‘‘The attorney general’s office fought for corruption, and they won,’’ said Kathy Santos, Luis’ mother, outside court. ‘‘They defended a backroom deal, you know? They got away with it for today, but we’re very disappointed. Where’s the justice for our son? He was murdered. Two conniving politicians got away with it.’’ The family said the judge’s words were not enough. They want the reduced sentence for Nunez thrown out. Connelly sided with the attorney general’s office in ruling that Marsy’s Law does not specifically address the governor’s power of pardons and louis vuitton sale commutations, which may have been an oversight when it was drafted.
