The twin brother of the man accused of killing rookie Burbank Police
Officer Matthew Pavelka pleaded guilty Tuesday in Burbank Superior
Court to being an accessory after the fact.
James Garcia, 20, of Sun Valley, is scheduled to be arraigned
April 15 in the Burbank courthouse, and is expected to serve 16
months in a state prison.
Erwin DeLeon, 21, of Sun Valley, also pleaded guilty to being an
accessory after the fact, along with being in possession of a machine
gun. DeLeon is also expected to be sentenced to 16 months in a state
prison next month.
The men were accused of helping alleged cop killer David A. Garcia
evade police after the Nov. 15 shooting that left Pavelka dead and
veteran Burbank Police Officer Greg Campbell critically wounded.
David Garcia is scheduled for a preliminary hearing June 4 in
Pasadena Superior Court.
