Home care worker sentenced to prison

A home health care worker was sentenced last week to three years in state prison for inflicting corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant.

Michael Daddo Munar, 53, of Williams, was sentenced on July 22, after pleading no contest in a plea deal that dismissed the charge that he interfered with his victim attempting to use a telephone to call for help.

The Williams Police Department arrested Munar, originally from Yuba City, at the senior apartments on Marguerite Street, in Williams, at 04:21 AM on June 4.

Colusa County Superior Court Judge Jeffrey A. Thompson sentenced Munar to one year more than the mid-term, due to the seriousness of the crime.

Thompson said the victim, who had suffered a stroke, was a vulnerable individual and suffered great bodily injury during the incident with a laceration to the head.

Munar, has a 20-year criminal history in Sutter County, dating back to 2000 when he was convicted of violating a protective order, court records indicate. He also has separate convictions of possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

At the time of his Colusa County arrest, Munar was on probation in Sutter County after he pleaded guilty in 2019 to corporal injury on a cohabitant, in a deal that dismissed charges including brandishing a deadly weapon, trespass of a residence and robbery, according to court records. He also had a warrant for his arrest stemming from his January 2020 arrest for vandalism, for which he failed to appear in court.

Munar will remain in the Colusa County Jail until he is transferred to state prison when COVID-19 restrictions limiting admissions to state facilities eases. ‚Ė†
