Clerk convicted of illegal use of court information sentenced

The former San Luis Obispo Superior Court clerk accused of illegal use of court information was sentenced this morning to serve 75 days in County Jail and was placed on probation for two years.

Juvenal Marin, 24, of Santa Maria, had previously entered a plea of no-contest to a charge of removing public records after an undercover detective said Marin sold him court information in a San Luis Obispo parking garage.

Prosecutors dropped an initial charge of unauthorized computer access against Marin.

Marin was arrested Sept. 3 after a three-month investigation into his alleged sale of court information, Sheriff's Department officials said.
