I just put this up on our Web site:
BALDWIN PARK – School board member Sergio Corona is serving three years probation for a misdemeanor charge stemming from his May arrest, officials said Friday.
Corona pleaded guilty to resisting arrest and obstructing a police officer in late October, said Jane Robison, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. He was sentenced to one day in jail, fined $150 and was ordered to pay $100 in restitution fees, she said.
The 34-year-old school board member was Tased and arrested May 22 after allegedly breaking the windows of a home on Sandstone Street. In July, he was charged with resisting arrest, misdemeanor vandalism under $400 and driving without a license. The latter two charges were dropped, Robison said.
Initial police reports claimed Corona admitted to having smoked methamphetamine and marijuana earlier in the night.
But subsequent toxicology reports did not support the allegations and Corona on denied the claims. He did, however, say he took “full responsibility” for the arrest.
Look for a full story in this weekend’s paper.
