‘The Bling Ring’: Main players - Where are they now?
In April, Nick Prugo was sentenced to two years in state prison. But he was released within days, as his sentence was cut in half for good behavior and work credits, since he had already served some time behind bars when he failed to post bail. Prugo, 22, told The Times he has received numerous interview requests, but is not speaking to anyone about his life post-prison. (AFP / Getty Images and Handout)
After pleading no contest in July to one count of receiving stolen property from Paris Hilton¿s home, Roy Lopez Jr. moved to Texas in an effort to restart his life. He is currently working an oil-field job -- a gig that keeps him occupied 70 hours a week or more, the 31-year-old said in an interview with The Times. (Irfan Khan / Los Angeles Times)
Diana Tamayo was sentenced in October to three years’ probation, plus time served in the county jail, and 60 days community service with the California Department of Transportation. Tamayo, who was 21 at the time of sentencing, is now working on a career in the nutrition and fitness industry. (Irfan Khan / Los Angeles Times)
The Los Angeles Police Department detective who helped crack the Bling Ring case made headlines last year when The Times revealed that he served as a consultant on Sofia Coppola¿s film. For $12,500, he advised the filmmaker on the realities of arresting a suspect, and in a surprise turn agreed to play himself in one scene - slapping the cuffs on Watson’s character. But Goodkin didn¿t get permission from the LAPD to work on the movie. He also didn¿t inform the district attorney’s office about his role - a potential conflict of interest, since at the time of production last year, Ames, Tamayo and Lopez were all still awaiting trial. Upon learning of Goodkin’s actions, the LAPD launched an internal affairs investigation. He now faces possible termination; in April, he was ordered to go in front of a disciplinary panel that will soon rule on the results of the inquiry. (Reed Saxon / AP)
