A young man known as “Nervous” to his homies in Fallbrook made a plea deal and was sentenced to one year custody, this week.
“I did unlawfully assault with deadly weapon another with force likely to cause great bodily injury,” the admission is written on a felony plea form for Juan Carlos Lopez, 18.
“I did inflict great bodily injury.” Lopez reportedly stabbed another man through the ribs which collapsed the victim’s lung, during a melee at Fallbrook High School last June. The school was hosting a two-day fundraising carnival at the time.
“I committed the offense in association with a criminal street gang with the intent to assist criminal conduct by gang members.” Prosecutor Cal Logan alleged the young man was a member of the Vario Fallbrook Locos, and that Lopez is known by the gang moniker “Nervous.”
Judge K. Michael Kirkman ordered “Nervous” Juan Carlos Lopez to register as a gang offender. He also ordered Lopez to pay an $800 fine to the court and $60,544 restitution to his victim.
