Time served for man who stabbed friend
July 19, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

Dustin Semenza

A Santa Barbara man who stabbed his friend seven times during an argument after attending a San Francisco 49ers game in September is free from custody after striking a plea deal.

Dustin Semenza, 28, was originally charged with premeditated attempted murder but Friday pleaded no contest to assault with a deadly weapon and was immediately sentenced to a year in jail with credit of 597 days. He was also placed on three years supervised probation and must pay restitution in an amount to be determined at a Sept. 19 hearing.

South San Francisco police arrested Semenza after responding to the Residence Inn at 1350 Veterans Blvd. around 2 a.m. Sept. 23 on reports of a stabbing in his room.

The victim’s brother said the three had come from Santa Barbara for the football game. After, he and Semenza went to San Francisco for drinking while the 28-year-old returned to the hotel room. The victim called them later, asking them to come back with snacks but, after they arrived, he and Semenza reportedly got into a heated argument because they hadn’t originally accompanied him to the hotel. The brother left for the elevator and Semenza joined him shortly after. The brother returned to the room to check on the victim and found him bleeding from seven stab wounds.

Semenza had been held without bail but is now free from custody.
