Trial date in eluding case approaching

Staff Reports

An Oct. 2-7 trial is looming in the case of two people accused of felony eluding after a chase that managed to pass several Carson Valley neighborhoods.

Ronnie Demone Crawford Jr., 42, and Tasheena Savage, 34, are denying the charges and court clerks will start calling jurors in the case in the coming weeks.

Whether the trial will occur on time will be confirmed at a Sept. 19 motions hearing.

Neither Crawford nor Savage were willing to waive their right to a speedy trial, which is generally interpreted to be one within 60 days, depending on the court calendar.

District Judge Tod Young will hear the case.

Crawford is represented by the law office of Mathew Work while Savage is represented by Kristine Brown.
