Prison answer to trying to get victim to lie
A San Jose man was sentenced to 19-48 months in prison for trying to dissuade a witness from reporting a domestic battery.
Daniel A. Cravin, 24, was ordered to serve the time consecutively with any sentences he receives from two cases pending in California.
Cravin admitted on Feb. 5 that he told the battery victim that she wouldn’t get in trouble if she testified that she wanted him taken away because he was drunk.
He was arrested on New Year’s Day after deputies responded to an address on South Riverview Drive in the Gardnerville Ranchos.
The victim told deputies he punched, slapped and kicked her.
The attempt to convince her not to testify occurred between the date of his arrest and Jan. 10.
