Accused burglar to be released from jail before trial

For months, the Parkland Hills Neighborhood has dealt with multiple burglaries. Last week, a suspect was arrested, and on Tuesday he learned whether he would stay behind bars before his trial.


A judge ruled that Alric Garcia could be released, but would get the maximum level of court-ordered supervision.

“{You're and} Incredible nuisance in the community, whether that rises to the level of dangerousness as contemplated on the constitutional amendment I don't think so,” ruled Judge Stan Whitaker.

It's not the answer many in neighborhood hoped for, but Judge Whitaker made sure to let Alric Julian Garcia know he needed to follow the law.

Garcia will be released from jail before trial, but with GPS monitoring and he won't be allowed out of the house between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m.

“I'm feeling really good about how this case turned out for the preventative measure. I think that we got the best possible outcome that we could have hoped for,” said Daryl Nieto.

He is the victim in this case.

He testified before the court, even with the defense arguing he shouldn't, saying surveillance video isn't always clear and they weren't given enough notice about the witness.

“For me, it feels like a big risk because now the perpetrator the suspect has my face along with my address, however, it was worth it if my testimony had anything to do with the maximum possible measure associated with the suspect then I'm happy about that,” said Nieto.
