I'm sure Ms. Valdivia should have gotten a medal instead of jail; shame on the judge.

I bet with that name the judge((SHAHLA ???)) is a woman who probably came from a woman-beater country like the middle east ,no wonder this man-hater gave Valdivia such a light sentence.

Where are the details? Why did she think she was innocent? Self defense, why? What about the kids?
Daily Bulletin, you are lacking.

RANCHO CUCAMONGA - An Upland woman was sentenced to seven years in state prison Wednesday for stabbing her husband to death with a sword.
Naomi Valdivia, 35, maintained she acted in self-defense when 36-year-old Jose Luis Gonzales was killed on April 26, 2008, in the 800 block of West Orchid Court.
Though Valdivia believed she was innocent, the mother of five opted to plead no contest to voluntary manslaughter last month to avoid a potentially longer prison sentence if convicted of murder, her sister said.
On Wednesday in West Valley Superior Court, Judge Shahla S. Sabet sentenced Valdivia to the seven years in state prison, said Deputy District Attorney Nancy Cooper.

No, She really shouldn't. Check out the public records regarding the case before you start spouting off and defending a killer. Sit in court one day and find out the truth. 7 years is nothing compared to what she should have received. You think because she's a mother, of 5, that makes her innocent? You couldn't be more wrong. Shame on you.
Just wondering

It wasn't the judges decision, it was what the prosecutor worked out with the defense. I find it odd that this prosecutor came in at the last minute to tank the prosecutions premeditated Murder case. What was wrong with the job Ted Smith was doing? All of a sudden Nancy Cooper comes on board and the case goes int he toilet? hmmmmm

You women should be very ashamed of yourselves. God forbid one of you were put in a traggic situation like hers, being beat on every freakin day by a man you thought would treat you with more respect. Reading these comments make me sick. Put yourself in her damn shoes and tell me what you have done? Imagine, he beat her that night and if it wasnt for what that brave women had did her kids would be dead also. All men arent bad but this one was. She is as innocent as she says she is and none of you should be judging her because i will tell you one thing, your no damn better than she is. So all of you " so called women" out there think about what you have said about this women and what she did to save hers and her childrens lives. All of you blind, ignorant people need to stop running your mouths and get your freakin facts straight before you leave these stupid careless comments on something serious like this. Low lifes.

Just cause she found god doesn`t mean she is innocent. I was locked up with her. She had other options. Instead had her son help hide the body. And in laws had to put a missing person report. Cause sher try to hide her crime. You dont know nothing . She destory memories for her two youngest children and for them to know their father. So do research before you comment.

Well by the sound of it you didn't know this women at all. Who the hell do you think you are judging her like your god. Hmm I wonder what you were in there for that you think your better then this women. You know ignorant people like you piss me the hell off. YOU need to get your damn facts straight cause you don't know a damn thing about her. Your putting your facts based on crap you heard. You don't know what she has been through and you will never know. Your talking about her killing her childs memories? Imagine what they had to live with. Their memories have been killed honey and let me tell you something, it sure as hell wasn't the mothers fault. Your trying to say she had her son try to hide the body? Tell me how that is even possible if this man was 240 lbs and her son was only 13. Ha lady you don't know a damn thing about what your talking about, if you asked me, I think your talking out of your a**. Have you even thought about what her older children had to go through, no you didn't lady. So I suggest the next time you want to try and put "facts" out there like that get the correct ones. And you obviously need stop doing research on this women cause your never going to find the truth. Take it from someone who was actually in the situation. And next time before you start judging remember you make mistakes too.

oh and another thing medina doing research isn't going to get you the facts. Researching is giving you other peoples opinions not the truth so learn the difference between knowing her full side of the story other then listening to what other people are putting in.

fact iwas locked up with her but my case was dismissed. i had to fight cause they did make a mistake, and i won. but i was close where she did confine in me. i didnt say her son did it on his own i said helped her. maybe thats why she pleaed out cause she did want to put her family thur anymore grief. she has found peace. thats great. but she still has those nightmares. i pray for her and her family to be at peace and they will. For your info she not doing the whole 7years. anyways its not important to me. So this is the last time you will hear from me. Its just a sad story for anyone to repeat.
