Ricardo Jesus Cisneros, 24, of Ceres, was convicted on August 23, of felony domestic violence, admitted a prior domestic violence conviction and admitted two prison priors.
On May 12, the defendant was in a dating relationship with a woman who was five months pregnant. The victim informed Cisneros that she was breaking up with him and he responded by stating, "No one breaks up with me," and then struck her in the neck with a metal rod, slapped her in the face and punched her in the nose until she lost consciousness. When she awakened he ordered her to clean up the blood on the walls and floor and said, "Get up and clean up your blood or I'll kill you. There's already a crime scene." The woman obeyed out of fear and cleaned up the area. She later escaped to safety and went to the hospital for treatment.
Cisneros was on Post Release Community Supervision on another felony case for which he had been sentenced to three years in prison.
Upon entry of the no contest plea, he is scheduled for sentencing on Sept. 23 when he will be sentenced to six years in state prison.
