County Court: Trouble deepens for two 'no shows' Tell North Platte what you think

Two defendants facing minor misdemeanor charges failed to appear for their hearings Thursday, making matters worse for themselves.

When Barry Allen, 36, missed his probation violation hearing, defense attorney Martin Troshynski said he has not heard from his client since he posted bail. That was on Feb. 19, according to sheriff’s records.

“He didn’t come to talk to me,” Troshynski said.

Troshynski asked Lincoln County Judge Michael Piccolo to continue the hearing, allowing time for his client to show up, a standard request for a defense attorney.

Lincoln County Deputy County Attorney Kourtnei Hoeft objected. She asked for Piccolo to issue a warrant for Allen’s arrest.

Piccolo agreed. He issued a $5,000 warrant for Allen’s arrest.

Likewise, 19-year-old Terrell Caudillo skipped his plea hearing for the charge of domestic assault. Defense attorney Blaine Gillett said he did not know Caudillo’s whereabouts, and asked for a continuance.

Hoeft objected again. For the second time Piccolo denied the defense motion. This time, he issued a $10,000 bench warrant.

“When the warrant is served, I am sure I will be hearing from him then,” Gillett said.
