Court Briefs for the past week
Case 3090,3129 & 1469 State of Idaho vs. Jesse Cobos III
On Nov. 20th 2019, Judge Epis presided over the sentencing and final court disposition of Jessie Cobos III. These have been ongoing cases and some of them date back to charges filed in Oct. 2018. The state expressed their difficulty in prosecuting the charges, which included felony rape, due to the victim refusing to cooperate with the state. The defendant’s attorney also expressed her frustration in her client’s alleged victim asking the state to drop charges at least 6 times over the duration of these proceedings. This left the state to focus on the No Contact Violations and Battery charges.
Judge Epis wanted to make it clear at this time, that Mr. Cobos understood his prior guilty pleas encompassed charges set for sentencing today including three violation of no contact orders and one domestic battery enhanced – in the presence of a child.
