Six months after their arrests, three burglars who targeted Menlo Park's Willows neighborhood pleaded no contest on Monday (April 11).
Ricardo Esparza, 18, and his 19-year-old brother Victor Alfonso Esparza, and Jesus Enrique Lara, 19, pleaded no contest to two counts of burglary in San Mateo County Superior Court.
Each man also pleaded guilty to a single count of first-degree burglary, according to the district attorney's office.
Judge Lisa Novak ordered the men to pay at least $42,050 to four victims. She also sentenced them to three years supervised probation following one year in county jail, with 279 days credited as time served.
The trio was arrested after 10 daytime burglaries and two attempts occurred last September in the Willows neighborhood.
The district attorney's office said Lara was on probation for auto theft when the burglaries occurred.
