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

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.”
