LOS ANGELES – A former Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy charged with breaking into his ex-fiance’s residence and threatening her boyfriend with a gun pleaded no contest today to making a criminal threat, the District Attorney’s office announced.

Deputy District Attorney Alfred Coletta with the Justice System Integrity Division said Reymundo Lainez, 43, was immediately sentenced by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Barbara Johnson to 90 days in county jail or private municipal jail.

Lainez, who pleaded to a felony and a strike offense, was placed on five years formal probation and ordered to complete one year of domestic violence or anger management counseling. He was ordered to stay away from the victims in this case while on probation.

The off-duty sheriff’s deputy broke into his former fiance’s Pasadena residence on April 17, 2010, and pointed a gun at her boyfriend. He first threatened the man, and then punched him.

In exchange for his plea, one count each of first-degree burglary with a person present and assault with a firearm, both felonies, and one misdemeanor count of battery were dismissed.
