Probation revoked for Johnson Lane man

Staff Reports


A 22-year-old Johnson Lane man was sentenced Tuesday to 32 months in Nevada state prison after his probation was revoked for domestic battery and theft of a motor vehicle.

District Judge Tod Young told Clayton DeGracia he must serve a minimum of 12 months before he is eligible for parole.

At a revocation hearing Tuesday, DeGracia asked that his time be imposed. Young gave him credit for 86 days in custody.

He was arrested in October 2010 in connection with marijuana sales from a home in Chichester Estates, and sentenced to five years probation with the underlying prison sentence.

DeGracia was arrested May 26 in El Dorado County.

According to reports, deputies were called to the victim’s Indian Hills neighborhood on the report of a couple arguing in the street.

When they arrived, DeGracia reportedly had left with the victim’s car.

He was charged with grand larceny of a motor vehicle and battery that constitutes domestic violence.

He was accused of striking the victim multiple times in the head, then leaving in her vehicle without permission. The auto theft charge is to be dismissed.

■ Criminal proceedings have been delayed against a 20-year-old man accused of stabbing his great-great grandfather in the neck while the suspect is evaluated at the Lake’s Crossing Center for mentally disordered offenders.

District Judge Michael Gibbons authorized the transfer of Bradley Endsley Jr. from Douglas County Jail to the facility in Sparks on Monday for a psychological evaluation to determine if the suspect is competent to understand the charges against him, and can assist with his defense.

Gibbons set a review hearing for Sept. 9.

The request was made by Endsley’s attorney, Charles Diaz, of Reno, without objection from the district attorney’s office.

“You’ll be expected to cooperate with the doctors,” Gibbons told Endsley.

Endsley is accused of stabbing his 82-year-old great-great-grandfather in the neck, nearly severing the alleged victim’s trachea and cutting his thyroid.

The alleged incident took place early April 15 at the victim’s Topaz Ranch Estates home on Slate Road.

Deputies arrived on scene at 12:30 a.m. after a report of a gunshot. They reportedly found Endsley inside the home holding a knife.

As deputies issued orders to Endsley, the victim pulled into the driveway bleeding from a stab wound. The man told deputies that he was attacked by Endsley, and managed to escape before deputies arrived.

Deputies forced their way into the home, and placed Endsley into custody for attempted murder.

He was charged with battery with a deadly weapon causing substantial bodily harm to a person 60 years of age or older, and use or being in possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine.

The battery charge carries a punishment of up to 15 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. The elderly enhancement is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
