Man sentenced to prison for assault at Sacramento-area cardroom

Published: Friday, May. 30, 2014 - 4:21 pm

A man convicted of assaulting an individual at a Sacramento-area cardroom has been sentenced to seven years in state prison.

A jury earlier this month convicted 31-year-old Christopher Carlisle of assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury and battery with serious bodily injury. The jury also found true that Carlisle personally inflicted the injuries and that both counts were hate crimes, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office news release. He was sentenced today by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Delbert Oros.

On July 7, 2013, Carlisle was gambling at the Casino Royale, then on Auburn Boulevard. He began to use racial epithets before calling the victim, who is Latino, a murderer, authorities said.

When security personnel asked Carlisle to leave, he punched the victim in the face. The victim suffered a fractured jaw and underwent surgery as a result.
