GREENFIELD — On June 15, Greenfield resident Jose Ochoa, 37, was sentenced to two years in prison for violating a domestic violence restraining order.
Jane Doe was married to Ochoa for approximately 18 years. After they separated, Doe was granted a criminal protective order, which prevented Ochoa from contacting her. On April 19, at approximately midnight, Doe was in bed with her three young children. In violation of the court order, Ochoa knocked on the front door and demanded entry. Once inside, Ochoa accused Doe of hosting another man.
When Doe told Ochoa she would call 911 if he didn’t leave, Ochoa pinned Doe to the couch and punched her in the face eight times. At one point during the assault, Doe was able to break free from Ochoa, and saw their 9-year-old son witnessing the attack. Ochoa then punched Doe in the face five more times.
Monterey County Superior Court Judge Robert A. Burlison sentenced Ochoa to two years in state prison.
The case was investigated by Greenfield Police Officer Joseph Dyels.
