Daniel Chaupiz and the woman met at a bar and he then returned a week later and attempted to talk with the same woman, who didn t want to speak to him. The woman s parents filed a complaint and he was arrested thereafter. Mr. Chaupiz was released on parole June 17th following his incarceration of 15 months in state prison. That prison sentence stems from his part as the mastermind of the baseball bat beating of his then girlfriend s ex.
