The Japanese diplomat accused of abusinghis wife with a string of assaults,includingstabbing her in the hand with a small screw-driver and pushing her from a car,was sen-tenced Monday to a year in jail on twofelony charges of domestic violence.Yoshiaki Nagaya,33,will serve about sixmonths and must surrender to the jail May 4.He was also given three years probation and104 hours of domestic violence counseling.He was originally charged with more thana dozen counts of domestic violence forinjuries his wife,Yuka,documented in pho-tographs but a judge dropped one after a pre-liminary hearing and prosecutors dismissedthe rest as part of the plea deal reached inDecember.Nagaya was on his way toward a trial andthe possibility of up to 20 years in prisonwhen he abruptly pleaded no contest inreturn for no more than a year in jail. Onecount stemmed from a May 3,2011 incidentin which he bruised her arm and anotherincident in which he bruised her left thigh.Both the prosecution and Judge CraigParsons agreed Nagaya appeared onlyremorseful when he was arrested,not for theactual conduct,said Chief Deputy DistrictAttorney Karen Guidotti.Despite the no contest plea,defense attor-ney Gerrick Lew said in a prepared state-ment after sentencing that the couple had amutually abusive rela-tionship. He said YukaNagaya’s testimony at thepreliminary hearing andstatements to police wereinconsistent which “putin question whetherevents ... occurred at all.”He had argued for a 90-day sentence instead.Nagaya is the vice con-sul at the Japanese con-sulate in San Francisco but he and his wifemoved to San Bruno. The case drewJapanese media to San Mateo County andsaw several bizarre moments during a five-day preliminary hearing last fall,includingthe abrupt quitting of one translator whosaid he was too tired to continue and YukaNagaya trying to secretly record her testimo-ny for a civil personal injury lawsuit againsther husband. Consulate members were alsochastised by the judge not to intimidate YukaNagaya during her testimony whichstretched over multiple days because of translation issues,claims she couldn’t recallincidents and lengthy cross-examination.Yuka Nagaya testified that the couple,who had married in April 2010,often quar-reled over suspicions he was having a rela-tionship with a fellow consul employee. Thealleged abuse began when they lived in SanFrancisco and continued after they moved toSan Bruno. She said between January 2011and March 31,2012,the incidents includedhitting her over the head with a laptop,stab-bing her hand with a miniature screwdriver,pouring milk over her head and striking herface so hard she later lost a tooth. A judgelater dismissed the tooth allegation. SanBruno police arrested Yoshiaki Nagaya April1 after she said he threw her from a car in theparking lot of their San Bruno apartment.Yuka Nagaya said after one incident shefled their apartment barefoot in the middleof the night out of fear but,after crying inthe stairwell,returned because she alsofound it frightening to be alone in a foreigncountry. She also testified she did not callpolice because that’s not how people inJapan handle domestic disputes.During the preliminary hearing,prosecu-tors presented photographs Yuka Nagayatook of the injuries.Yoshiaki Nagaya has been free from cus-tody on $350,000 cash bail and remainsemployed with the consulate in SanFrancisco.He must also return to court April 25 for arestitution hearing. His wife submitted arequest for nearly $200,000 but provided nodocumentation,Guidotti said.
