Sweetwater Trustee Pearl Quiñones, who for months has maintained her innocence in what the District Attorney’s Office has characterized as the largest public corruption case in San Diego County, pleaded guilty Tuesday to one felony charge of conspiracy to commit a crime and one misdemeanor conflict of interest charge.

“Pearl Quiñones had admitted she made an error in judgment as a board member at Sweetwater, that she entered a plea agreement with the district attorney which allows her a reduction to a misdemeanor at closure of probation,” attorney Marc Carlos said. “She looks forward to closing an unfortunate chapter in her life and is ready to move on.”

Quiñones will have to resign her post as a board member because she pleaded guilty to a felony.
