FAIRFIELD — The Vacaville father and son who were accused of attacking another of the father’s sons with an aluminum baseball bat have taken plea deals.
Ernest Castillo, 36, pleaded no contest Thursday to being an accessory after a felony occurred. He was sentenced to 16 months in prison. His son, Ernest Castillo Jr., 17, pleaded no contest last week to another felony in exchange to a two-year prison sentence.
The Castillos were accused of attacking their 17-year-old relative in the garage of an Alonzo Road home on the evening of Aug. 10, 2010. The victim testified at a probable cause hearing that he had been drinking cough syrup and smoking marijuana with his father and brother before a fistfight broke out between the brothers.
The fight ended with Ernest Castillo Jr. swinging a bat and striking his brother in the head.
