CBS Sacramento: "Schwarzenegger To Be Sued Over Marsy’s Law"
Victims Claim Violation of Constitutional Rights
By Mike Luery
SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The family of a college student who was stabbed to death two years ago plans to file a lawsuit on Thursday in Sacramento Superior Court against Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Santos family of northern California will claim that former Governor Schwarzenegger violated their constitutional rights.
Just hours before leaving office, Arnold Schwarzenegger reduced the prison time for the son of politician and friend Fabian Nunez, the former Speaker of the Assembly. Esteban Nunez was serving 16 years for manslaughter in the death of college student Luis Santos.
Schwarzenegger commuted Nunez’s sentence down to seven years in prison, angering Santos family members, who were never notified, they say in violation of Marsy’s Law.
