Julian Daily, 39, of North Platte was again in Lincoln County Court Friday on a theft charge, plus criminal mischief because he allegedly damaged a vending machine.
Defense attorney Russ Jones asked the court for a reduced bond. He said the county shouldn’t have to pay to house someone for such minor crimes. Lincoln County Deputy Attorney Tanya Roberts-Connick objected, reminding the court of Daily’s history of the same type of crimes.
Lincoln County Judge Michael Piccolo left the bond at $2,500 and the case was bound over to district court.
Daily has been a regular at the jail and courthouse, with prior arrests dating back to 2000. Records show that he has been in the county court 27 times since 2000. Most of his offenses are for theft and shoplifting, and criminal trespass, criminal mischief and a failure to appear fill out the list.
Daily has received stiff sentences in the past before because of his errant ways. He once spent 300 days in jail for stealing a bottle of eyeglass cleaner worth $3.97.
Apparently unwilling to change his ways, he has been warned by county judges that he could end up in the state pen over something worth just a few dollars.
Daughter assaults dad
A family fight ending with Alexis Harlow, 18, of North Platte conking her dad with a glass ashtray sent Alexis to the county jail. She is held on a $10,000 bond and a charge of 2nd degree assault.
Apparently there was a family disagreement late Sunday night and Harlow used a glass ashtray to whack her father Warren Harlow.
Alexis appeared Monday on video from the jail in front of Lincoln County Judge Michael Piccolo to be arraigned. She requested a public defender and her preliminary hearing was set for July 27.
