A San Luis Obispo city employee convicted of brutally knocking out a woman and repeatedly punching her companion in a bar will be allowed to serve his 60-day-sentence in a 'pay-to-stay' jail in Orange County. A San Luis Obispo County Superior Court judge Thursday granted Christopher Olcott a request to stay in an upgraded city-run jail. Olcott previously made a plea deal that resulted in felony charges being reduced to  misdemeanor battery with great bodily injury.
