HART — The 21-year-old Hesperia man convicted of breaking into the Hart High School in 2014 pleaded guilty Monday, March 14, in 27th Circuit Court to receiving and concealing stolen property valued between $1,000-$20,000.

Korbin Cruz Garcia, of 4820 E. Loop Rd., was convicted last year for his role in the Dec. 26, 2014 school break-in and sentenced to six months in jail.

Now, he’s facing more jail time for receiving and concealing a Rolex watch last November in Elbridge Township. Garcia testified Monday that he knew the watch was stolen. In exchange for his plea to the added count of receiving and concealing stolen property, one count of first-degree home invasion and one count of felony firearms were dismissed. He must also provide truthful testimony against co-defendant Steven Rice. The agreement calls for a jail term and no prison time.

Sentencing is set for April 25 at 9 a.m. Garcia was remanded to the county jail pending his sentence.
