For David Navarro, the nightmare began five years ago when he was awakened by police after falling asleep on the sand at Huntington Beach State Park. He was accused of taking part in a gang rape. And although he was innocent, he was convicted and served 3 1/2 years before being freed on a legal appeal. Orange County authorities challenged him to prove his innocence by helping find the actual rapists. Navarro, 25, of Santa Fe Springs, agreed to the challenge.

A 32-year-old Orange man who shot himself twice after shooting and killing his former girlfriend at an Anaheim Hills restaurant last October was found guilty of first-degree murder Monday. Deputy Dist. Atty. Jeoffrey L. Robinson told jurors that he would leave it up to them whether Larry L. Burgoon, who survived two suicide attempts during the tumultuous relationship, was guilty of first- or second-degree murder. The jurors came back with the harsher of the two verdicts after a little more than one day of deliberations at Harbor Municipal Court.

Five Santa Fe Springs men have pleaded guilty to the 1981 gang rape of a woman at Huntington Beach State Park after an undercover investigation in which a man wrongly sent to prison for the crime helped gather evidence against the other men while he was free awaiting a new trial. The five men each pleaded guilty to one count of rape and one count of oral copulation in a plea arrangement the district attorney's office agreed to in order to spare the victim the agony of testifying at their trial.
