The other student, 20-year-old Ryan Alexander Goodman, pleaded guilty to grand theft in January 2012 and was sentenced to one day in county jail and two years of probation conditioned on completion of a substance abuse treatment program, according to the county district attorney's office.
Police said they found in the college students' dormitory two iPads and other electronic items believed to have been stolen.
Ironically, a former Menlo School assistant baseball coach who spotted the pair grabbing the backpacks was himself later charged with stealing iPads from the campus. Michael Taylor voluntarily confessed to the Atherton Police Department and pleaded no contest to misdemeanor petty theft. Mr. Taylor was sentenced to three days in county jail and 18 months of probation, and also ordered to pay $212 in restitution and court fees.
