Domingos Jose Oliveira
A 49-year-old Spring Valley man has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison for hanging "wanted dead or alive" posters offering a $3,000 reward for the death of his daughter's boyfriend.

Domingos Jose Oliveira was convicted of solicitation of murder and a hate crime. His anger was directed at his daughter's 33-year-old boyfriend, a registered sex offender. His daughter is 20 years old.

Oliveira placed posters around Grossmont College, offering the reward "for the body" of the boyfriend, a student at the college.

Oliveira was sentenced Monday to seven years and four months in prison by San Diego Superior Court Judge William McGrath.
