A judge Wednesday reinstated a state prison term of 35 years to life for the convicted killer of Sheriff's Cadet Kelly Bazer.
Jesse Lee Stuart, 21, of San Diego, received the same sentence he had received last year before an appeals court ordered that he be sentenced again with a new attorney.
Stuart was convicted of first-degree murder in the Jan. 13, 1986, death of Bazer, 28, an El Cajon mother of two, who was off duty when confronted by Stuart in Spring Valley.
The 4th District Court of Appeal ruled June 12 that Stuart had to be re-sentenced because his trial attorney, Millie Durovic, was weighing a job offer with the San Diego County district attorney's office while representing Stuart. Durovic became a prosecutor after Stuart was sentenced, but she denied there was any conflict.
