A onetime newspaper owner was sentenced to eight months in jail for sexually battering two women who visited his office.
One of the women was assaulted when she was trying to get help with a fax machine.
Jaryd Cade McRee is the former owner of the Marina Gazette. He pleaded no contest to sexual battery.
Monterey County Judge Richard Curtis sentenced McRee to 240 days in jail yesterday.
Prosecutors agreed to the plea bargain so the victims wouldn’t need to testify.
