Judge blasts Jose Castaneda at sentencing

Calling Jose Castaneda’s courtroom remorse "less than sincere," Monterey County Judge Carrie Panetta sentenced him Tuesday to serve eight years in prison for domestic violence. After Castaneda read a 15-minute defendant statement, Panetta described the former Alisal school board president and Salinas City Council member as self-serving, narcissistic, and lacking a sense of responsibility for the crimes he committed against his ex-girlfriend.
