"FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) --

A former Fresno County court clerk and 5 other people in a witness intimidation case have accepted a plea deal.

After 18 months, 6 people accused of intimidating a witness have decided to take a plea deal but one of them, a man named Ricky Modesto, hesitated at first, "it doesn't surprise me, his behavior and what he's done to all these people in this case, the lives he's ruined in this case," Defense Attorney, Gerald Schwab said.

Schwab is one of the attorney's involved with the case. In 2013, Modesto was in jail, accused of brutally beating a man and breaking his jaw. While behind bars, Schwab says Modesto wanted to keep witnesses from talking so he called his client and 4 other people, "he victimized them, called them, got them involved, called them relentlessly until they got themselves involved," Schwab added."
