Daniel Ellis, 24, of Mountain Center, pleaded guilty to a felony charge of receiving a stolen Kawasaki motorcycle. He was sentenced to two years and eight months in state prison.
Ellis was arrested in October and had several subsequent arrests, including one Jan. 9, also for possession of a stolen Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle, before pleading guilty on Monday, April 3.
Besides the August charge, Ellis also pleaded guilty to two other separate felony arrests and charges, including the January arrest, and a December misdemeanor for vandalism.
For the original arrest, Judge Mark Mandio sentenced Ellis to state prison for 32 months. For the other convictions, he was sentenced to two separate 16-month terms, which are to be served concurrently with the longer term. For the vandalism conviction, Mandio imposed a 32-day sentence; but Ellis was credited for the time he spent in jail awaiting trial and no additional incarceration was necessary.
