Ukiah Father Takes Plea Deal

A Ukiah father, who was orig­i­nally charged with assault result­ing in a coma due to brain injury of a child younger than 8 years old, could now face pro­ba­tion rather than a pos­si­ble life sen­tence since the child has recov­ered. The baby boy was 6 months old when Daniel Camara was charged with child abuse result­ing in the child’s hos­pi­tal­iza­tion. The Men­do­cino County Dis­trict Attorney’s Office con­firms that the child has recov­ered so they’ve recon­sid­ered the charge and offered a plea deal that would allow the father to spend the next five years on pro­ba­tion instead. Camara plead guilty Wednes­day to the lesser charge, and will be back in court Jan. 28 for sentencing.
