The criminal case remains ongoing, and it has not yet been resolved. Four of the six defendants have pleaded guilty, and it is anticipated that another defendant will enter a guilty plea in the next month. The assigned Deputy District Attorney (DDA) is still trying to negotiate a plea with the remaining defendant. Additionally, the assigned DDA is still currently working to resolve evidentiary discovery matters in order to set a trial-date in case the one remaining defendant chooses not to plead guilty and instead elects to go forward with a jury trial. Partial restitution has been collected or seized. The District Attorney’s office will be sending out Marsy’s Law letters along with a restitution form to the victims. Victims will need to submit the restitution form as soon as possible to ensure a correct restitution amount can be established. We will not begin to distribute any restitution until all the defendants have been convicted, either by plea or by jury trial.
