Women admit eluding case

Two women involved in a 100-mph chase on Aug. 20 admitted to attempted eluding of a police officer and voluntary sexual contact with a prisoner Monday.

Tricia Ann-Marie Turria, 30 and Nicole Angel Rimer, 43, were arrested above Bodie Flat after a pursuit that led from Esmeralda Avenue in Minden.

Turria was on parole from a 2018 trafficking charge and will likely go back to prison for the rest of her 4-10 year sentence in addition to the charges.

According to reports, Rimer who was the passenger in the Aug. 20 pursuit, made a false report that there was an armed man at Sharkey’s Casino in an attempt to lure police officers away from chasing them.

Rimer was released on her own recognizance to settle misdemeanor cases out of Washoe County and Sparks.

Sentencing for Turria and Rimer is set for Dec. 4.

• A man who admitted to a third DUI offense in September was taken into custody Monday to serve 1-4 years in prison.

According to court documents Jamison has a 2017 driving under the influence offense out of Arizona and a 2022 offense while he was on probation for the first offense.

He was convicted in an El Dorado County case stemming from a fight with a teenage relative in July 2022.

He was released and then had an alternative sentencing violation in July. He admitted the charge in August.
