On the eve of his scheduled trial later this week, Guillermo Rivera Nunez pleaded guilty to one count of burglary of a habitation, receiving a suspended sentence of two years in the state jail division and two years of community supervision.
On Sept. 3, 2007, Jim Wells County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to County Road 480 in reference to a suspicious vehicle seen dropping off and picking up two individuals.
The passengers were seen carrying an air conditioning unit.
The deputies caught up with the vehicle on County Road 344, where they made a traffic stop.
Nunez, a passenger in the vehicle, told police the items in the back seat belonged to Augustin Mungia Perez, and he had helped move the items.
Nunez said at the time of the stop they were “just driving around,” according to the report.
In the back of the vehicle the deputies found a stereo system, a television, a DVD player and a laptop computer.
All four men were taken to the Jim Wells County jail, and the items were identified by the victim as stolen from her home.
During his term of probation, Rivera must refrain from committing another offense, stay away from places or persons of harmful or disreputable character, submit to alcohol and urinalysis testing at any time, home searches and hold to a curfew of 10 p.m.
Nunez was also assigned to an intensive probation for drug offenders for one year and was ordered to participate in a counseling program for substance abuse.
Nunez will also have to complete 160 hours of community service.
