SAN JOSE, Calif.- The sentencing hearing for the father of Sierra LaMar's suspected killer took place Tuesday in a San Jose courtroom after three weeks of a delay where prosecutors said they will push for a life imprisonment penalty.
Genaro Garcia Fernandez was convicted of child sexual assault.
A judge had put off Fernandez's sentencing due to illness. He will return to court January 28th. As for his son, the accused killer of 15-year-old Morgan Hill Teenager Sierra LaMar, Antolin Garcia-Torres will return to a San Jose courtroom for a continued plea hearing on February 6 for assault charges for three other women in 2009.
Garcia-Torres has yet to enter a plea to any of the charges he faces and sits in jail on no bail.
