HART — A 21-year-old Hesperia man convicted of receiving and concealing stolen property valued between $1,000-$20,000 was sentenced in 27th Circuit Court Monday, April 25, to serve eight months up front of a one-year discretionary jail term.

Korbin Cruz Garcia, of 4820 E. Loop Rd., was also convicted last year of breaking into the Hart High School, Dec. 26, 2014, and sentenced to six months in jail.

His recent conviction involves receiving and concealing a Rolex watch last November in Elbridge Township. Garcia testified last month 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.

Garcia told Judge Anthony A. Monton that he is improving his life by “staying away from certain people,” and he apologized for his wrongdoings.

His attorney, Harold Hermanson, asked Monton to allow Garcia work release from jail, but Monton denied the request.

Garcia was also ordered to 18 months probation and a 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew upon his release from jail. He as also ordered to not use alcohol or drugs. He was given credit for 148 days served in jail.
