DEPT. OF CORRECTIONS

Nick Schou's July 20 article "Two Down, One to Go" erroneously reported that prosecutors now admit George Lopez, the Garden Grove youth serving time for a 1999 robbery of an Anaheim commercial loan business, is innocent of the crime. Prosecutors have admitted no such thing, and we regret the error. Call it wishful thinking: three witnesses to the crime say Lopez is innocent, as does convicted felon Johnny Manuel Santacruz. Santacruz has in fact offered to tell prosecutors who really robbed the store in return for immunity from further prosecution—an offer the district attorney has so far refused. Wait! This just in: in an interview with LA Times reporter Stuart Pfeifer published Aug. 1, Santacruz said he committed the crime for which Lopez was convicted. The DA's office still hasn't talked to him. Once again, we're really sorry.
