In a surprise twist, Sohum home invasion suspect pleads out before jury trial

There were talks yesterday but then the trial seemed a go, he is pleading right now in Courtroom 1.

Sentencing July 7. I am covering Daniels closing but will have details later.

Swortzel plead to first degree burglary, admit special alegation that persons were presentvwhich makes it a serious, violent felony and he can only get 15% of credit served; he waived credit for time served upto sentencing. He admitted to a "strike prior" and two "prison priors."

Maximum prison exposure is ten years, with no credits.
