The man charged with motor vehicle homicide in a fatality accident August 20th on the west edge of Mitchell has had his preliminary hearing postponed.
23 year old Joshua Bolzer of Mitchell was to appear in court this (Tuesday) afternoon, but the preliminary hearing has been pushed back to September 14th at 11 a.m. Bolzer, who was reported to have been driving at 120 miles per hour when the accident occurred, is also charged with drunk driving and willful reckless driving in the death of 19 year old Dereon Betancur.
He continues to be held in the Scotts Bluff County jail on $250,000 bond.
Meanwhile, the attorney for a rural Scottsbluff man facing two charges of felony terroristic threats following an 11 hour standoff west of Scottsbluff on that same day, August 20th, has filed for a continuance in the preliminary hearing in the case.
Sterling Huff asked for the delay, which will be considered by the court at an 11 a.m. hearing today (Tuesday) for 65 year old Daniel Converse.
The charges concern alleged threats made to family members prior to the standoff. Bond has been set at $50,000 with a ten percent cash provision.
