Transgender Prostitute Gets 11 Years in Killing

May 23, 2003|From Times Staff Reports

A Ventura County judge Thursday sentenced a transgender prostitute to 11 years in state prison for pummeling a 78-year-old retiree during a scuffle in the man's bedroom three years ago.

Judge Roland Purnell ordered James Cid, 31, to serve the maximum term for voluntary manslaughter in the death of Jack Jamar.

Cid admitted hitting the widower inside his east Ventura home on March 10, 2000, but he later told police he acted in self-defense after Jamar tried to rape him.
