Man Gets Time Served for Chaining Daughter

From Times Staff Reports

A Fullerton man convicted of misdemeanor false imprisonment for chaining his 21-year-old daughter to her bed was sentenced Wednesday to the 179 days he did in jail before his trial.

But neither David Mata Avila, 54, nor his wife, Guadalupe, 52, who was acquitted along with her husband on a felony false imprisonment charge, will be released because they are being held on immigration issues.
