Los Angeles Times - - CITY & STATE -

SACRA­MENTO — A former mayor of Stock­ton pleaded no con­test to pro­vid­ing al­co­hol to a mi­nor, set­tling charges that once in­cluded al­le­ga­tions that he se­cretly recorded por­tions of a teen camp coun­selor strip poker game.

De­fense at­tor­ney Mark Re­ichel said An­thony Silva en­tered the plea Fri­day in Amador County Su­pe­rior Court. He was or­dered to per­form 40 hours of com­mu­nity ser­vice.

Silva faced four mis­de­meanor charges from the 2015 in­ci­dent at the week­long camp he ran for un­der­priv­i­leged chil­dren.

He has said that he ac­ci­den­tally recorded the strip poker game af­ter walk­ing into the mid­dle of it and that all par­tic­i­pants were at least age 18.

Silva still is charged in neigh­bor­ing San Joaquin County with steal­ing hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars in­tended for a youth club.
