Los Angeles Times - - Obituaries - — Tony Perry

The son of for­mer state Assem­bly Speaker Fabian Nuñez is seek­ing a re­duc­tion in the 16-year prison sen­tence he re­ceived in June af­ter plead­ing guilty to man­slaugh­ter and as­sault in the 2008 stab­bing death of a San Diego col­lege stu­dent.

Lawyers say that Este­ban Nuñez, now 21, de­served a lesser sen­tence than was meted out to co-de­fen­dant Ryan Jett, who had prior felony con­vic­tions and ad­mit­ted stab­bing Luis Santos, a Mesa Col­lege stu­dent, dur­ing a late-night drunken brawl near San Diego State.

Nuñez, Jett and two friends at­tacked Luis Santos in a rage af­ter be­ing de­nied en­try to a fra­ter­nity party, ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments. Jett stabbed Santos; Nuñez, also armed with a knife, cut two of Santos’ friends dur­ing the brief con­fronta­tion.
