Trial delayed for former City Council candidate

The trial in the appeal of former City Council candidate Brent Foutz has been set for after January in District Court. It is for charges in Boulder City Municipal Court stemming from a confrontation last year.

On July 18, Judge Pro-Tem Margaret Whitaker found Foutz guilty of trespassing, not amounting to burglary, and resisting a public officer for a December confrontation in which he refused to leave the Southern Nevada State Veterans Home, 100 Veterans Memorial Drive, after being told he had trespassed and must leave. Whitaker fined him $500 for each charge and sentenced him to seven days in jail with credit for time served.

Foutz appealed the decision in District Court and requested a jury trial. Judge Richard Scotti denied the request for a jury, which Foutz appealed to the Nevada Supreme Court. That court dismissed his appeal Tuesday, Oct. 15, for a jury trial.

According to the minutes from Foutz’s Oct. 10 status check hearing, the court ordered the trial for his appeal for “after January.” The order did not specify what type of trial it would be.
