No resolution, then resolution, Nicholas Leigl pleads out in the Jesus Garcia homicide case

I was the only media present Friday for trial assignment for Nicholas Leigl.

They were waiting to see what courtroom he was assigned to so I left. He was also on the court calendar for today, as listed in the post below, as of Friday evening.

However, Leigl ended up pleading on Friday. Just found out. No other media was in court at that time either.

Leigl plead no contest to an added Count 3 PC 186.22 (a), according to the DA's office. Sentencing on December 14, 2017.

Count 2 and the special allegation for Count 2 was dismissed.

PC 186. 22 (a) "Any person who actively participates in any criminal street gang with knowledge that its members engage in or have engaged in a pattern of criminal gang activity, and who willfully promotes, furthers, or assists in any felonious criminal conduct by members of that gang, shall be punished by imprisonment in a county jail for a period not to exceed one year, or by imprisonment in the state prison for 16 months, or two or three years."

Still no resolution in Nicholas Leigl case, it is still a go for Monday pending courtroom availability

Still no resolution in the Nicholas Leigl case in which he is charged with one count, accessory after the fact, for the homicide of Jesus Garcia.

Unless courtroom availability is an issue, it is a go for this Monday. Jury trial is scheduled to start Monday at 9:45 in Courtroom 2.

  1. It's really too bad. I believe this guy was not guilty of planning, or covering up what happened. He in fact seemed to be the only person who put any effort into saving the kid.
