A private investigator was sentenced Thursday to a year in county jail, three years probation and 1,000 hours of community service in connection
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Lance Ito put Bradley Gregory Miller's jail sentence on hold for six months and suspended a two-year state prison term that the 51-year-old man will not have to serve if he complies with the terms of probation.
Miller pleaded no contest in October 2009 to one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice and three counts of offering to bribe a witness.
Miller was one of three men charged. Co-defendants George Izquierdo, a 64-year-old Highland Park real estate broker at , and Camilo Valentin, 36, each pleaded no contest May 1 to conspiracy to obstruct justice.
Izquierdo was sentenced May 22 to three years probation, ordered to perform 500 hours of community service and pay a $5,000 fine, while Valentin was sentenced to one year probation, 300 hours of community service and a $1,000 fine.
The three were charged in June 2006 after a woman who had begun testifying against Izquierdo's son, Alex, disappeared during a preliminary hearing in 2005.
An investigation by the District Attorney's Bureau of Investigation determined that the woman was taken to Las Vegas and given money to stop her from testifying against Alex Izquierdo, who later pleaded guilty to two counts of sodomy and one count of making a criminal threat.
Alex Izquierdo was sentenced in February 2009 to nearly 22 years in state prison.
