Man faces parole violation

A 61-year-old Gardnerville man who said he preferred prison to drug treatment back in March may get to go back.

Kenton Duffy was arrested on Friday morning after being pulled over with an open container in the vehicle and a driver’s license suspended for driving under the influence.

Duffy appeared in custody in East Fork Justice Court on Monday in connection to the arrest.

While Duffy’s bail is $4,600, he is being held on a parole violation.

He only spent about two months of his 12-32-month sentence incarcerated and was paroled May 18, according to the Department of Corrections.

Kris Brown was appointed to represent him when he returns to court.
