Leal and Wallace are two of four defendants that accepted pleas regarding the trial. By accepting the pleas the victim in the case will not have to testify multiple times potentially re-living the crime each time he testifies. The defendants are still being held accountable to the seriousness of the crimes.
The fifth defendant Elliot Roberts is scheduled for preliminary hearing in early October.
