EL CAJON (CNS) - An East County man accused of offering a $3,000 bounty for the "dead or alive" capture of his 19-year-old daughter's sex offender boyfriend must stand trial on charges of solicitation of murder and making threats, a judge ruled Tuesday.
Domingos Jose Oliveira faces up to 11 years in prison if convicted, prosecutors said.
After a morning-long preliminary hearing, El Cajon Judge Herbert Exarhos ruled that enough evidence had been presented for Oliveira to stand trial June 20. A readiness conference is set for May 31.
Oliveira, 49, was arrested the morning of March 25th at his Spring Valley home, several hours after a search warrant was served at the Roadside Place residence, according to La Mesa police.
Oliveira's 19-year-old daughter and her 33-year-old boyfriend, a registered sex offender, reported him to authorities after he allegedly posted several homemade "reward" signs at Grossmont College in La Mesa, LMPD Lt. Dan Willis said.
The placards bore the boyfriend's name and photo and offered the cash bounty "for the (man's) body ... dead or alive," according to Willis.
