Brenda Lee, 39, Of North Platte, pled not guilty Monday to being a felon in possession of a deadly weapon, use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony and terroristic threats. Lee allegedly used a chainsaw and a shotgun to threaten a man and another woman April 9, landing her back in jail after she was out for only four days. She was arrested in the 1700 block of West 14th. According to Police Information Officer Rodney Brown, officers believed that Lee was under the influence for something and she later tested positive for methamphetamine.
But Lee pled not guilty to the charges. Defense attorney Amanda Speichert asked for a bond reduction that was denied by Lincoln County District Judge Donald Rowlands due to Lee’s extensive record, leaving her bond at $100,000.
Lee got out of jail May 30 after serving 52 days for domestic assault and driving under suspension.
Her record shows 20 visits to the county jail since 2004, on such charges as assaults, use of a weapon, terroristic threats, cruelty towards a child, theft, cocaine possession, resisting arrest and false reporting.
