Pair in Monday’s high speed chase appear in court
A man and woman involved in a pursuit around Carson Valley on Monday are scheduled to return to East Fork Justice Court on Wednesday.
Ronnie Demone Crawford Jr. and Tasheena Savage are facing felony charges in connection with the chase which reached more than 120 mph on Highway 395 and 60 mph on County Road through Minden.
Neither Crawford, 42, nor Savage, 34, waived their right to a speedy preliminary hearing.
That could happen at their Wednesday hearing when they will appear with their attorneys.
If not, prosecutors would have to be ready to present slight or marginal evidence that a crime occurred and Crawford and Savage could have committed it.
