James Pleads Guilty to McElrath Slaying: Facing 25 Years to Life in Prison

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

jamesguiltyLassen County District Attorney Stacey Montgomery released a brief statement Thursday afternoon announcing that Robin Glen James, a co-defendant in the murder of off-duty Susanville police officer Robert McElrath, has plead guilty to the charges and will be sentenced on March 6th, 2015 at 1:30pm, in Lassen Superior Court.

According to the District Attorney James appeared in Lassen Superior Court Thursday where he plead guilty to a felony charge of murder and a special allegation of premeditation.

James waived his right to appeal and now faces a 25 years-to-life sentence in state prison.

“I am content with the outcome of the case,” explained the District Attorney, “and want the community to know that James will be a very old man when and if he is ever released from prison.”

“The loss this community has suffered will forever leave a scar on our hearts,” added Montgomery, “but I hope with the admitted guilty plea from James, real healing can now begin for family, friends, the community and Rob’s brothers and sisters in law enforcement.”

Why We Need Reader Support
