"I thank my God every time I remember you." - Phflippians 1:30. You blessed me beyond measure. Love, Dianne Martin Feedb, about monthly case zll}tz{zie This month has continued to demonstrate challenges to our public safety partners both in the quality and quantity of crime we are addressing in Plumas County. The increase in crime, fortunately, continues to be met with an outstanding response by local law enforcement. I would like to express my gratitude to those supporting our monthly update. Throughout the last few years we have received a very positive response to our efforts to update those in the community, with the help of our local paper, on judicial outcomes of criminal cases here in Plumas County. Our Criminal Case Update began in February 2011 in response to numerous requests by members of the public concerning the outcome of criminal cases. Typically, folks in our community would hear, see or read about a crime, then be left to wonder or, worse yet, rely on gossip to obtain an idea of what happened to the perpetrator. It seemed this type of uncertainty did not assist the public in assessing the level of justice being PrOvided in our courts. • J It is my hope the added layer of transparency in providirig the outcome to some of our criminal cases will continue to allow for a more informed community and an aplropriate level of confidence in our ability to seek and achieve justice on their behalf. Below is a sampling of some of our recent cases. These cases reflect outcomes in cases previously covered by Feather Publishing at the time of arrest• People v. Michael Garcia People v. Rebecca Weilmunster On March 21, the Honorable Janet Hilde sentenced Michael Ramiro Garcia to 10 years, and Rebecca Ann Weilmunster to two years of imprisonment.
