Crime news

EVANSTON — On Jan. 18, Jake E. Bradshaw of Lyman appeared in Uinta County Circuit Court before judge Michael L. Greer for a preliminary hearing on a dozen charges. One of the charges is a felony, and was to be settled in District Court later in the day.

The 11 misdemeanor charges were for five violations of a protection order, interference with a police officer, eluding police, leaving the scene of an accident, speeding, reckless endangering and driving under the influence of alcohol.

In a plea agreement, Bradshaw pleaded guilty to the DUI charge, reckless endangering, leaving the scene of an accident and eluding. The other misdemeanor charges were dismissed.

It was alleged Bradshaw rammed another vehicle twice on March 16, 2012, endangering the occupant of that vehicle, and eluded police officers on Oct. 26, 2012, by failing to stop when he knew they were trying to pull him over. It was further alleged Bradshaw had a blood alcohol concentration of .15 at the time of his arrest on Dec. 7, 2012. The legal limit in Wyoming is 0.08 percent.

Bradshaw was sentenced to pay $40 in court costs on each of three of the charges, pay $150 to the Crime Victim’s Fund on two of the charges, serve 180 days on the eluding charge, 180 days on the DUI charge, suspended, 360 days on the reckless endangering charge, suspended, three years supervised probation on the DUI charge, and one year supervised probation on the reckless endangering.

Bradshaw was also ordered to have a substance abuse evaluation completed, and follow any and all recommended treatment.

There was also a court order for Bradshaw to pay $500 in restitution on the reckless endangering charge.

In Third District Court, on the afternoon of Jan. 18, Bradshaw pleaded guilty to the felony charge of stalking before judge Dennis L. Sanderson. It was alleged between Oct. 24 and Oct. 28, 2012, Bradshaw stalked an unnamed victim by text messaging in direct violation of a court protection order. Bradshaw was asked to read some of the text messages that were sent to the victim, but was stopped by Sanderson as the text messages included vulgar language.

When asked if he committed the stalking by texting that was meant to harass or likely to harass, Bradshaw said, “Yes.”

In a portion of the plea agreement between prosecutor Blaine Nelson and defense attorney Robert Horn, the verdict was withheld to avoid a felony charge on Bradshaw’s record. It was stated any infraction of the sentence in circuit court would violate the agreement and the felony charge would be imposed.
