Hearing set for Gardnerville man in rollover wreck
June 13, 2013
A pretrial conference is June 19 for a 20-year-old Gardnerville man accused of walking away from a rollover accident on Deer Run Road.
Tyler John Christy is facing charges of duty to give information or render aid at an accident, open container in motor vehicle and driving without due care stemming from the May 27 accident.
On Wednesday, East Fork Justice Pro Tem Paul Gilbert appointed attorney Derrick Lopez to represent Christy who is in custody until mid-August on a separate violation.
According to reports, Christy failed to negotiate the curve on Deer Run Road and his vehicle overturned.
He and two passengers reportedly abandoned the vehicle which was traced to him through the car’s registration.
His blood-alcohol content was .194, more than twice the legal limit for driving.
A 48-year-old Carson City woman was sentenced Wednesday to five days in Douglas County Jail for contempt when she failed to take court-ordered drug tests.
Ann Syphus-Reed claimed she had only negative tests and was a successful graduate of Western Regional Drug Court.
She told East Fork Justice Pro Tem Paul Gilbert that she had started a licensed home health care business and was in danger of losing more clients if she can’t get out of jail.
She has an underlying charge of a second driving under the influence of drugs offense.
Chief Deputy District Attorney Tom Gregory said Syphus-Reed had a pending case in Carson City.
Chief alternative sentencing officer Michael Beam said he “respectfully disputed” her claims, but she had two missed tests which placed her in a high-risk category.
Gilbert ordered her to submit to the ordered tests or face additional sanctions.
East Fork Justice Pro Tem Paul Gilbert refused Wednesday to reduce the bail for a Gardnerville man accused of trespassing and drug possession.
Gilbert said Stefan Delia, 42, could bring up bail reduction at another hearing Friday with his attorney, Derrick Lopez.
Delia has called the charges “an out-and-out lie.”
He is accused of entering a former roommate’s home while the man was asleep and yelling at him, and being in possession of methamphetamine.
Bail was $25,637 for a 33-year-old Indian Hills woman who reportedly battered deputies who took her into custody after finding her intoxicated on a downtown Gardnerville sidewalk shortly before midnight Tuesday.
Cara Nicole Feletar is facing charges of assault on a peace officer and resisting and obstructing an officer.
A deputy saw Feletar lying on the sidewalk in front of the East Fork Hotel with her shoes off.
While deputies were talking with the suspect, her mother drove up, but Feletar yelled at her mother to go home.
As deputies attempted to calm Feletar, she pushed an officer in the chest with both hands and yelled obscenities. She started waving her hands in a slapping motion and continued to yell.
She knocked the deputy’s glasses off and scratched his left eyelid.
Feletar was forced to the ground, handcuffed and placed into custody. Deputies said she intentionally dropped to her knees and forced officers to carry her to the patrol unit.
Once inside the vehicle, she continued to resist, kicking the officer in the legs and trying to kick out the acrylic glass and window cage.
A preliminary breath test determined her alcohol content at .250, more than three times the legal limit for driving.
While Feletar was being booked, she spit at deputies and continued yelling obscenities.
She is set for arraignment Friday in East Fork Justice Court.
