A bodyguard for the Billionaire Boys Club pleaded guilty today to being an accessory to the murder of a Beverly Hills con man whose body has never been found.
Under terms of the plea bargain with the district attorney's office, James Pittman, 34, who has been in custody since October, 1984, will not have to serve any additional jail time when sentenced Dec. 1 for the June, 1984, killing of Ron Levin.
Pittman also pleaded guilty in a separate case to possessing a handgun. Both charges carry a maximum sentence of three years in state prison, the time Pittman has already been jailed.
However, Pittman will remain in custody pending trial in Northern California for the murder-kidnaping of a wealthy Iranian in an alleged scheme to get him to sign over his fortune to the BBC.
