Donald R. Bristol
Donald R. Bristol, 26, of North Platte, was arraigned Tuesday on charges of hunting and fishing without permits and being a felon in possession of a firearm. Lincoln County Judge Kent Turnbull set the bond relatively high for the charges because of a prior conviction of a felon in possession of a gun.
Bristol's bond was set at $25,000. He asked for a public defender.
Bristol was sentenced Sept. 20, 2010 in Lincoln County District Court to three years of probation for possession of a stolen firearm, after he was found with a pump action shotgun with a black-powder barrel. At the time, Bristol had been a convicted felon for nearly a year with a previous conviction that involved a stolen firearm, police said at the time.
Dwight A. Coleman Jr., faces a charge of second-offense felony domestic assault. Coleman was recently sentenced to 90 days in jail on Jan. 6, but he was out of jail when he was arrested Jan. 17.
Turnbull set the bond relatively high Tuesday at $25,000 because of Coleman’s prior record, which also includes a number of domestic assault charges as well as simple assaults, drug charges, driving under the influence of alcohol, trespassing and contempt of court, among others.
Coleman was sentenced on Jan. 6 to 90 days in jail for attempted possession of methamphetamine. He had not reported to the jail to serve the sentence.
According to county records, Coleman has been booked in jail 20 times since May 2004.
Also, Sophia May Boe, a frequent name on the jail roster, was arrested Jan. 16 on a charge of felony domestic assault for allegedly hitting her boyfriend in the back with a pool cue.
Boe and the man were arguing because she found out he was going to file a protection order against her, according to county court information.
At around 6:40 p.m., police officers talked with the man and a witness backed up his story.
Officers found Boe at the couple’s home in the 400 block of East 12th and arrested her. Boe was booked into the jail on a $5,000 bond. She paid her bond the next day.
Last summer, Boe served 109 days in jail for tampering with a witness and possession of methamphetamine and was released Sept. 6.
In each of the last four years, she was arrested two times each year.
