Steven Brooks Set for Mid-July Preliminary Hearing

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- More California court dates have been set for former Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks on charges stemming from a car chase and police confrontation in March.

Prosecutors say that a Victorville, Calif. judge on Tuesday set a pre-preliminary hearing July 16, and a preliminary hearing July 18.

Brooks' defense asked last month that he be enrolled in a mental health court program that would allow him out on probation and hold him accountable for receiving mental health treatment. That plan was rejected.

Brooks has been in a San Bernardino County jail since his March 28 arrest along Interstate 15 in Victorville.

That came the same day Nevada lawmakers voted to expel Brooks from the Legislature following his streak of erratic behavior.
