Gonzalez sentenced on misdemeanor battery charge

AUBURN, Calif. -- A linebacker for San Jose State has been sentenced to 45 days in jail for punching a friend in the face three years ago.

Prosecutors say 20-year-old Ryne "Ryno" Gonzalez confronted Chad Cisneros in 2005 over a woman both were dating. Gonzalez walked into Cisneros' home in Penryn, east of Sacramento, when he saw his girlfriend's truck in the driveway.

Gonzalez, a 2005 graduate of Del Oro High School in Loomis, was sentenced Monday on a misdemeanor battery charge. A jury convicted him on March 26 after a two-day trial.

He was also ordered to pay $650 in fines.

It is unclear whether Gonzalez's scholarship at San Jose State will be affected.
