Young men appear in court on assault, weapon chargesTell North Platte what you think
 

Three young men who face assault charges -- Christian Vera, Terrence Alexander and Jobie Loving -- appeared Thursday in Lincoln County Court.

The three were charged in two separate events during a three-day period, March 3-6.

Vera, 19, and Alexander, 20, are charged with handgun crimes and incarcerated at the Lincoln County Jail. Loving, 19, is charged with assault and free on 10 percent of $100,000 bond.

Vera is charged with shooting 18-year-old Joshell Green on March 6 at a video game get-together in North Platte. The official charge is first-degree (intentional) assault, as well as use of a firearm to commit a felony and possession of a stolen firearm.

In court, Defense Attorney Amanda Speichert announced that Vera will contest the validity of the charges, exercising his right to a constested preliminary hearing.

She asked for a reduction in Vera’s $250,000 bond, but Lincoln County Deputy Attorney Kourtnei Hoeft objected and Lincoln County Judge Michael Piccolo denied the reduction.

 

Alexander and Loving were charged a few days after a March 3 party west of North Platte. Alexander showed up with injuries at 1 a.m. March 3 at Great Plains Health. He told investigators that a bunch of people attacked him, hitting him with a chair and a home stereo.

Loving was charged with assaulting Alexander. Witnesses said Alexander first displayed a large-caliber semi-automatic handgun at a party west of North Platte.

In court, Alexander’s Defense Attorney Patrick Heng said the complete sheriff’s office report is not yet finished about the alleged assaults, so his client is not ready to take another step in court. Heng indicated Alexander could contest the charges, but declined an opportunity to set a hearing date until he has seen the final report. 

Loving waived his right Thursday to a preliminary hearing on first-degree assault. The charge was bound over to district court. He is free on bond pending his next court appearance.
