Man sentenced for 2011 attempted murder, carjacking

A man who pleaded no contest to attempted murder and carjacking has been sentenced to eight years and eight months in state prison.

Jose Camilo, 32, was sentenced today by Sacramento Superior Court Judge John P. Winn.

On March 30, 2011, Camilo intentionally rode his bicycle into the side of a car waiting at a stoplight at Florin and Power Inn roads, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney's Office news release. He then entered the car through the passenger door, beat the 51-year-old driver, forced her out of the car and sped away.

Authorities said Camilo drove recklessly through a nearby neighborhood. When he passed a woman walking her daughter home from an after-school program, he made a U-turn and drove back toward her. He drove up on the sidewalk and struck her with the car.

Camilo then parked the car several houses away, got out of the vehicle and angrily approached the injured woman. The woman's daughter tried to pull her mother behind a neighbor who had walked out to his yard to see was happening.

Camilo then returned to the car and fled.
