Man receives prison sentence for false ID
A Lake Tahoe man whose attorney said he struggled with heroin and methamphetamine also went to prison for using someone else’s ID.
Joshua Martin, 27, was sentenced to 12-36 months consecutive to a Tahoe Township Justice Court sentence he’s serving. He told District Judge Tod Young that someone gave him the ID because the person knew he was on the run on Tuesday.
■ A former professional hockey player was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation as part of his suspended sentence on a felony drug charge.
Jason Beeman, 34, received a suspended 12-34-month sentence after he admitted to a count of conspiracy to violate the Uniform Controlled Substances Act.
Beeman said he’d received some concussions while playing hockey.
Defense attorney Walter Fey said District Judge Tod Young wouldn’t see Beeman again.
“This is a case when one smash across the chops will make a big difference,” Fey said.
However, Young pointed out that Beeman’s arrest was bizarre and he was concerned about his mental health.
Deputies responded to the parking lot of the Carson Valley Inn where Beeman said he was lying on two children to prevent them from being taken up by aliens.
Beeman said he was under the influence, but that he’d seen aliens in the past.
