2020 Editions January More News Updates

By Laura Brady-Allen

Manuel “Manny” Espana, 37, a transient known in Eagle Rock for menacing people on the boulevards, was sent in December to Patton State Hospital, according to inmate records.

Espana has been in custody since March on charges of burglarizing a residence in Eagle Rock while a woman was in the house sleeping.

His trial was postponed after the defense raised a doubt as to Espana’s mental competence. Two doctors who evaluated Espana agreed with the defense that he is currently incompetent. The court will receive periodic progress reports on Espana.

The next update is due on January 15.
