A husband was sentenced Tuesday to more than a month in jail for kicking his wife in the face during a heated argument last week.
San Saelee, 30, of Sacramento was arrested the morning of April 20 at his Hackberry Lane residence just outside Carmichael on charges of domestic violence and false imprisonment. His 27-year-old wife told sheriff’s officers Saelee blocked her from leaving their home during the argument and threw her to the ground. Saelee then allegedly kicked her in the face, causing swelling. The wife was able to leave after the incident, according to the sheriff’s report.
Online court records show Saelee pled no contest Tuesday to one misdemeanor count of inflicting visible injury on a spouse, while the false imprisonment charge was dismissed. He was sentenced to 45 days in custody and three years probation.
Needle and the damage done
A parolee found loitering in a Carmichael parking lot last week ended up in handcuffs when officers found a hypodermic syringe in his possession.
Michael McSwain, 50, was seen hanging out in a parking lot at Marconi Avenue and Fair Oaks Boulevard the morning of April 19, according to a sheriff’s report. Officers found the needle when they conducted a parole search.
McSwain’s parole agent authorized a hold, which the sheriff’s report says led to his booking.
A concerned family member’s call brought officers to the Carmichael home of Kevin Lewis, 41, earlier this month.
According to Dep. Jason Ramos, a spokesman for the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department, a relative of Lewis’ called authorities that April 14 morning to request a welfare check. Ramos said the reporting party claimed Lewis was “acting crazy” and breaking things inside their Panama Avenue residence.
When officers arrived around 1 a.m., a deputy saw a large knife in Lewis’ pants that cleared the way for a cursory search for more weapons. Instead, the deputy found a small plastic baggie containing an off-white crystal-like substance believed to be methamphetamine, as well as a small black container holding more of the substance. Two concealed firearms were also discovered in Lewis’ vehicle.
He was arrested and booked into the main jail in Sacramento on firearm and drug charges. An online records search turned up no reports of his arraignment in Sacramento Superior Court.
