One of the two Tesoro High School seniors accused of burglarizing their school in May and hacking into a teacher's computer has been sentenced to three years' probation and 200 hours of community service.
Tanvir Singh, 18, of Ladera Ranch pleaded guilty in court to one felony count and one misdemeanor count under a plea deal negotiated Tuesday. In exchange, prosecutors dropped the three other felony counts against him and could call on him to testify against his alleged co-conspirator, Omar Khan, who faces 69 felony counts and is believed to be the mastermind of the plot.
Singh also will have to pay court fees and all restitution, including possible damages to the school, said Susan Schroeder of the Orange County District Attorney's Office.
With good behavior, Singh will have the opportunity to have his felony count reduced to a misdemeanor after one year. And after successful completion of probation, the misdemeanor count also could be expunged from his record - a standard procedure, prosecutors said.

SANTA ANA – An Orange County judge on Monday postponed by four months the jury trial for a former Tesoro High School student accused of breaking into his school multiple times to change grades and steal tests.
Omar Khan, 20, of Coto de Caza was scheduled to stand trial beginning Monday, after being arrested nearly two years ago for allegedly breaking into his high school in Las Flores at least six times.
But Superior Court Judge Frank Fasel granted a request by Khan's new attorney, public defender Karren Kenney, to postpone his trial to Sept. 27 on the grounds that she needed more time to prepare. Kenney was brought in less than a month ago, after Khan's prior attorney declared an ethical conflict of interest and asked to be removed.
