Man not long out of ‘boot camp’ before DUI arrest
December 28, 2012
A Minden man who was stopped for allegedly driving under the influence recently got out of a regimental boot camp program.
Roger Dale Abraham-Noble Jr., 26, was pulled over early Saturday morning after failing to maintain his travel lane on Highway 395 near High School Street.
He was taken into custody after a preliminary breathylizer test revealed he had a .154 blood alcohol content.
Abraham-Noble appeared in East Fork Justice Court, where defense attorney Kris Brown told Judge Tom Perkins that Abraham-Noble was to appear in Douglas County District Court on Monday for a review hearing.
Abraham-Noble pleaded guilty to a felony charge of theft, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
He was allowed to attend the 6-9-month boot camp operated by the Nevada Department of Corrections in an effort to have his charge reduced from a felony to a gross misdemeanor. District Judge Michael Gibbons approved Abraham-Noble’s participation in the program in March.
His underlying conviction stemmed from an Oct. 31, 2011, theft of $1,400 in goods from an Alpine View man who gave Abraham-Noble a place to stay. Abraham-Noble told Gibbons he was on heroin at the time and pawned the items to pay for his drug habit.
Perkins set a Jan. 2 date to review the case. He said he would probably defer to the district court on the matter of bail. Abraham-Noble is being held on $3,737 bail.
