Former Upland City Manager Robb Quincey, who cut a plea deal with prosecutors less than a year ago, has abandoned an attempt to clear his felony record.

Quincey, who previously pleaded guilty to a single count of conflict of interest, involving a contract to which he had a personal financial interest, had filed to reduce his felony to a misdemeanor, terminate his probation early and dismiss and expunge the conviction.

It’s common practice with misdemeanor convictions, but less common on felony cases prior to normal probation being completed.

Court records indicate prosecutors filed an opposition to Quincey’s motion to dismiss, which was taken off calendar Friday morning.

Usually defense lawyers don’t file such motions unless they have reason to believe prosecutors will go along.

Here that buy off never occurred, or was reneged upon.

Quincey was required to repay Upland $50,000 in restitution.
