Another incident involving the imprisoned son of former state Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez is raising eyebrows.

The Nunez family reportedly tried to give a gift to an administrator at Mule Creek State Prison, where Esteban Nunez is serving time for manslaughter.

The prison says the administrator received an Amazon Kindle from the Nunezes, but she returned it.

Esteban Nunez is serving a seven-year sentence for his role in a fatal knife attack.

In one of his last acts as governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger cut Nunez's sentence by more than half.
