[Excerpts] An LA/Ontario International Airport police officer accused in March of punching his wife in the face has pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of disturbing the peace. Francisco Santiago, 45, will not have to serve additional jail time as part of the plea bargain reached in West Valley Superior Court. The Rancho Cucamonga resident also retained his job with Los Angeles Airport Police Department following his March 17 arrest on spousal abuse charges, said Sgt. Jim Holcomb, public information officer for the department... As part of the plea bargain reached Friday, Santiago was placed on three years' probation, fined $620, ordered to attend and complete a 12-week anger management program, and ordered to donate $500 to House of Ruth, a Claremont-based organization that assists women and children victimized by domestic violence. Santiago's attorney, Mark A. Johnson, said Santiago will be allowed to withdraw his no-contest plea after a year if he follows the terms of his probation, and his case will be dismissed. Santiago and his wife have reconciled "and are actually doing better than ever," Johnson said. The couple have even been attending Santiago's court appearances together, Johnson said. [LINK]

An LA/Ontario International Airport police officer was arrested last week on suspicion of
beating
his wife. Officer Francisco Santiago, 46, was arrested at his Rancho Cucamonga home March 17, around 5 p.m., and booked at West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga, according to jail records. Santiago was charged March 19 with a misdemeanor count of corporal injury to a spouse. Deputy District Attorney Ted Smith, who reviewed the case, would not discuss details of the case. He said when deciding whether to charge Santiago with a felony or misdemeanor, he would have taken into consideration the circumstances of how the injury took place and the extent of the injury. Los Angeles World Airports Sgt. Jim Holcomb would not say whether Santiago was still working as a police officer or how long he has worked there. "We just prefer to just let them do their investigation," he said of he local agencies. [LINK]
