San Francisco attorney David Repogle was convicted Monday of helping to kill and attempting to loot the assets of a Palm Springs retiree. Also convicted was Miguel Bustamante, a Daly City barkeep purportedly hired to help murder Cliff Lambert, a wealthy retired art dealer. Still awaiting trial are alleged accomplices Danny Garcia, and Kaushal Niroula -- the leader of an alleged con-artist crew who purportedly engineered swindles worth millions of dollars in diverse areas such as fine art and real estate.

Prosecutors say the conspirators forged documents in order to illegally transfer title of Lambert's house, and killed him in order to keep the deed secret.

Replogle once enjoyed local fame as an anti-child abuse crusader, after

recruiting underage plaintiffs willing to claim San Francisco financier

Thomas White had sex with them. Among the plaintiffs was Garcia, who is

expected to face similar murder charges next year.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
