A San Marcos man admitted two misdemeanors in connection with a reported minors-and-alcohol party at his employer’s warehouse last summer.

Sheriff’s deputies accused Eduardo Hidalgo, 26, of charging minors a fee to enter the warehouse and consume alcohol the night of June 30 into the early morning hours of July 1, at the 8,000 square foot building on Linda Vista Drive.

It was after 3 a.m. on a Sunday morning when deputies reported finding three beer kegs and tables set up for “beer pong” games and $886 in cash -- which they described as “proceeds of the party.”

In San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse, Eduardo Hidalgo signed a plea deal in which he admitted “I failed to prevent a minor from consuming alcoholic beverage on private property and failed to discontinue the party after possession.” These are San Diego County Code violations.

The defendant was sentenced last week to 100 hours volunteer work through MADD and is at liberty on three years’ unsupervised probation.

If the DA had really wanted his hide, she would have made one of his offenses a felony, and he would have been looking at some hard time. He'll likely screw up during his probationary period and end up in the slammer, unless he heads south of the border.

He got off easy.

These wer enot felony beefs. But the deal was pretty sweet- no fine and only 100 hours of community service.... a few weekends. Very sweet deal.
