Former city manager enters plea bargain

Upland’s former city manager has pleaded no contest to a felony charge.

Robb Quincey agreed to pay the city $50,000 in restitution stemming from conflict of interest charges in an agreement reached Tuesday in Rancho Cucamonga’s West Valley Superior Court, according to multiple reports.

All parties are scheduled to return to court Oct. 10 for sentencing. Quincey, who has already paid half of his fine, could be sentenced to one year in jail and fined up to $20,000, on top of the restitution payments.

Some of Quincey’s pension and benefits might be forfeited, the reports stated.

“By pleading today to the felony count, the defendant is essentially admitting to unlawfully gaining personal benefit from an official contract,” San Bernardino County District Attorney Michael Ramos said in a statement.

Quincey was arrested two years ago on multiple felony charges, including misappropriation of public funds, gaining personal benefit from a government contract and perjury, according to the reports.
