Irvine Man Charged with Felony Accessory After the Fact

A resident of Irvine has turned himself in after a warrent for his arrest on charges of “one felony count of accessory after the fact with knowledge of a person, and one misdemeanor count of resisting and obstructing a peace office.”

Servin is accused of assisting 38-year-old Robert Charles Serrano on Jan. 3. While driving under the influence of alcohol, Serrano ran a red light at the intersection of MacArthur Boulevard and Main Street in Santa Ana.

Four cars, including Serrano’s, were involved in the ensuing crash. A female driver of one of the involved vehicles, Corban White, 18, was injured and later died at a nearby hospital.

Servin is accused of picking Serrano up at the scene and later telling police he had not been in contact with and did not know where Serrano had gone, according to the release.

Servin turned himself in to the La Palma Police Department on Thursday. He was released from custody on $100,000 bail. [Source]

It is not clear from the article exactly why Servin assisted Serrano in fleeing the accident scene. Servin faces up to six years in prison.
