Briefs: Marysville domestic abuser's prison term upheld
The two-year prison sentence for a Marysville man's second spousal abuse conviction has been upheld by a state court.
Roger Carl Oney, 48, was arrested last June 2 after law enforcement officers arrived at his home in response to a domestic violence report.
He pleaded no contest to spousal abuse, was found ineligible for probation and sentenced to state prison.
The Sacramento-based 3rd District Court of Appeal in a ruling released Monday affirmed the Yuba County Superior Court judgment.
Board meeting on Robbins sewer rates today
The Sutter County Board of Supervisors will hold a specific hearing tonight on whether to adjust rates on sewer bills for residents of Robbins.
After years of problems, the county recently completed a new wastewater treatment system for the community of 400 residents.
Although Robbins residents approved higher sewer fees in a 2009 ballot measure, county public works officials have said those rates are still too low to meet operating costs.
The supervisors will meet as the governing board for Water Works District No. 1 at 7 p.m. at Robbins Elementary School, 17451 Pepper St.
