Report Reply +1 Vote up Vote down Guestalso · 258 weeks ago The defendants are to blame for THEIR actions. Regardless what the victims could have, would have, should have done. There is absolutely no reason why a 50some year old man should have spent a week in the hospital and nearly lost his life, from the hands of another “man” he was only trying to help.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Nick Reedy, 33, and Sylvester Provencio, 21, of Caldwell today have waived their right to a preliminary hearing and will enter pleas of either guilty or not guilty during a formal arraignment hearing scheduled for Oct. 1 at 1:30 p.m. in Sumner County District Court. Both men are facing at least two felony charges stemming from the alleged April 22 assault of two Caldwell men in their 50s in rural Sumner County.Sumner County Attorney Kerwin Spencer also dropped one felony charge — aggravated robbery, a level 3 felony — which stated the two defendants deliberately stole one of the victim’s pink Cadillac after the alleged attack.Sylvester ProvencioNick ReedyBoth men are facing at least two felony and three misdemeanor charges for the attack of Gregory Schneider, 53, and Bryan Nispel, 55, of Caldwell which occurred four miles east of the community.The preliminary hearing was scheduled today at 9:30 a.m. at the Sumner County District Court. Much of the morning was spent with a lengthy private conference amongst attorneys during the morning. The preliminary hearing got underway at 11:45 a.m. but was called for a lunch break thereafter. When the hearing reopened at 1:15 p.m., Spencer announced that the defense team wishes to waive the preliminary hearing. He also said he is dropping the aggravated robbery charge.Preliminary hearings are usually conducted so that the judge can determine whether there is enough evidence to bound the defendants over for trial. Usually, the defense has nothing to lose in a preliminary hearing as the burden of proof is always on the prosecution.Spencer said by waiving the hearing, the ball is now in the court of the Reedy and Provencio defense team, who must determine whether to plead not guilty and take their chances with a jury trial or to plead guilty and await sentencing from a judge.“I’m going to prepare this case as if we are going to jury trial,” Spencer told Sumner Newscow. “Whether or not they wish to plea bargain is entirely up to them.”Reedy and Provencio are facing six charges including aggravated battery, a level 4 felony, which states:“(The defendants) knowingly caused great bodily harm to another person, to -wit Greg Schneider, by punching and knocking Schneider to the ground and continuing to punch and kick him while he was helpless on the ground and caused Schneider to have a concussion, ruptured ear drum, severe head and neck trauma, cracked teeth, two broken ribs, bruises over much of his body and cuts and abrasions which required stitches and staples.”See more details of the alleged crime here).Both Reedy and Provencio were in court today represented by private attorneys. They are currently residing in Caldwell, after posting bond earlier this year.Reedy faces two felonies and three misdemeanor charges, while Provencio has an additional sixth charge of disorderly conduct, a Class C misdemeanor, because he threatened Nispel and Reedy did not, Spencer said.When the hearing started, Spencer delivered an opening statement to McQuin stating he wished to call six different witnesses, submit evidence, and introduce two different 911 tapes after the alleged incident which took place at 12:15 a.m. Wednesday.Spencer said there was a third person involved in the incident, Austin Townsend, who was with Reedy and Provencio at the time when the pickup they were in got stuck in the mud east of Caldwell. Spencer said when Schneider and Nispel stopped to help them and the situation turned adversarial, Townsend left the scene by running back to Caldwell which was about four miles.McQuin then asked the two defense lawyers if either one of them had an opening statement. Jess Hoeme, a defense attorney for Provencio, then spoke and asked the judge that Count 6 in the criminal complaint, the aggravated robbery charge, be thrown out.Hoeme contended that there was no way to prove that the pink Cadillac — owned by Shawna Schneider, the wife of Greg and used for her Mary Kay cosmetic business — was stolen by Reedy and Provencio after the attack.Hoeme said the men were fearing for their lives at the time because Nispel was using a pickup as a weapon against them. He said them getting into the Cadillac was a spur of the moment thing and an act of self defense.The Cadillac was eventually found back in Caldwell in a yard of one of the defendant’s relatives with the motor still running.Spencer said afterwards that the aggravated robbery charge would have been very tough to prove at trial and that led him to the decision to agree to drop the charge.After the alleged attack, both Provencio and Reedy were moved to Sumner County Jail where the judge placed a $100,000 appearance bond upon their arrival. Provencio bonded out on a $100,000 cash bail on May 22 after McQuin had refused to reduce bail during the first hearing in which he was to have no contact with the victims.Reedy remained in jail custody until June 11, 2015 when McQuin granted the request of his defense attorney Sal Intagliata who filed a motion to “Reduce the Bond” to $25,000 that included stipulations that he was to have no contact with the victims and have no alcohol.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

Investigators recovered her body a month later in a cornfield. A medical examiner has said Tibbetts was stabbed to death.Rivera is a Mexican national who has been accused of being in the country illegally.
