Clark was arrested Feb. 15.

Defense attorney Leonard Vyhnalek asked for a jury trial. Vyhnalek also asked for a bond reduction, but Deputy County Attorney Jennifer Wellan objected saying that Clark “needs to stay in jail. Every time he gets out he commits more crimes. And, during his past escape attempt he even tried to commit a carjacking.”

District Judge Richard Birch denied any bond change.

Clark’s record is long and includes probation violations, failure to appear, protection order violations, 10 counts of burglary and four counts of theft, as well as forgery, assault, criminal mischief, contempt of court, escape, false reporting, driving under suspension and shoplifting.

The escape charge came after two burglary charges in March 2010. When officers caught him, he threatened to harm himself so he was taken into protective custody at the Great Plains Regional Medical Center, where he pulled a fire alarm and escaped again. He was recaptured a short time later in Centennial Park.

During his arraignment in county court for the recent meth charges, Lincoln County Judge Michael Piccolo asked Clark if he understood his rights.

He quipped, “I should, as often as I’ve been in here.”


Wyman

Donald Wyman III, 51, of North Platte was sentenced Monday to 52 days in jail for writing bad checks. Prosecutor Jennifer Wellan asked for jail time, citing Wyman’s extensive arrest record.

Defense attorney Pat Hays asked the court for leniency.

“Yes, Mr. Wyman has a long record, but it’s all for rather minor stuff,” Hayes said.

Wyman has paid restitution for the bad checks and District Judge Richard Birch took that into consideration.

Wyman wrote bad checks at ABC Auto for car parts and at Town and Country Western Wear. He served 41 days last year on the charge, then paid the required 10 percent of $5,000 bond and was released.

After the sentence was handed down Monday, he was escorted back to jail.

Wyman’s record dates back to 1997 and includes dozens of charges, mostly related to harrassment of an ex-girl friend, and also including bad checks and DUIs.
