      Ex-Long Beach Officer Sentenced For Assaulting, Threatening Wife
      October 29, 2012 1:07 PM


      LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A 30-year-old former Long Beach police officer
      was sentenced to 12 years in prison Monday for assaulting his wife with a
      baton and other weapons.
      KNX 1070′s Ron Kilgore reports Brandon Preciado was convicted earlier this
      month for what a judge called the “physical and psychological torture” of
      his wife.
      Preciado was found guilty on Oct. 2 of more than a dozen felonies and
      several misdemeanors, including six felony counts of corporal injury to a
      spouse, three counts each of assault with a deadly weapon and assault by means
      likely to produce great bodily injury and one count of criminal threats.

      The eight-woman, four-man jury deliberated for about a day before the
      conviction, which also included five misdemeanor assault and battery charges.
      Preciado’s wife, Yessenia, told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Craig
      Richman her husband is a “great family man” and asked for leniency in his
      sentencing.
      Yessenia Preciado had previously testified that beginning in January, her
      husband had threatened to hit her with various objects, including a hammer
      and a work-issued flashlight, wrapped a belt around her neck, put her in a
      headlock, choked her, pushed her into a tile shower wall, and struck her
      multiple times, including with a broom and a closed fist.
      “I believe he needs help more than he needs prison time,” she told the
      judge.
      Preciado was also ordered Preciado to pay $1,266 to a victims’ compensation
      fund.
