Jury sentences Charles Sanchez to two years prison, 10 years probation
LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Following a motion by Charles Sanchez’s defense team to declare a mistrial, the jury sentenced the former Lubbock DJ to two years in prison and 10 years of probation.
Sanchez was found guilty of three counts of indecency with a child this past Friday. When sentencing began today, Sanchez’s attorneys filed a motion to declare a mistrial on the grounds that some jury members had accessed social media which may have unfairly influenced their verdict.
Sanchez will be ineligible for parole for the first count. The jury ordered five years each for counts two and three but the judge probated the sentences to 10 years probation.
Assistant DA Austin Sanford asked the jury to consider a sentence of two to 20 years in prison or 10 years probation.
