(El Centro City Councilman changes plea)….It was the result of a deal.
Edgard Garcia had entered a not guilty plea to two counts of DUI dating back to last May. This week Garcia changed his plea to No Contest. In exchange Garcia will be placed on 3 years’ summary probation, and he will perform five days community service, instead of five days in jail. There are other stipulations, including attending alcohol education classes and paying $1,700 in court fines and fees. All future court dates in the matter have been cleared.
