Mark Your Calendars: February 8th – Bunkerville Standoff

by Shari Dovale

Feb 8th is the calendar call for the next tier of defendants in the Bunkerville Standoff.

Mel Bundy, Dave Bundy, Joe O’Shaughnessy and Jason Woods are still scheduled for trial despite motions to dismiss filed and waiting for rulings. The current calendar shows the next trial beginning Feb. 26, 2018.

A flurry of paperwork is going through the courts. Judge Navarro is finally ruling on old motions, as she handles housekeeping and cleanup measures she has never gotten around to taking care of, or ruling on.

Judge Navarro dismissed the last tier in a scathing diatribe against the prosecution for their flagrant violations of the law. January 8th is a day that will marked in history as the Federal prosecutors got caught manipulating the very system they swore an oath to uphold.

The judge stated (emphasis added) “The government’s recklessness and the prejudice the defendants will suffer as a result of a retrial warrant the extreme measure of dismissing the Indictment because no lesser sanction would adequately defer – deter future investigatory and prosecutorial misconduct.”

She further went on to order, “It is herein ordered that the defendants’ Motion to Dismiss with prejudice … are hereby granted.”

The fact that the judge mentioned dismissing the indictment should raise the interest of all the attorneys involved. Dismissing the actual charges via the indictment should affect all the defendants, including those that have been convicted or plead to lesser charges, as they have all been the victims of the governments illegal behavior,

Two of the defendants are due to be sentenced before the next trial begins. Eric Parker and Scott Drexler, who agreed to plea to misdemeanor charges to avoid a third trial, have had their sentencing dates rescheduled to coincide with the calendar call on Feb. 8th. I also understand that Todd Engel’s new attorney has filed motions to address some of these issues.

This could be very telling for insiders that understand the nuances of court proceedings. However, I am not an attorney and can only speculate as to the meaning of what is happening.

Stay tuned, as the saga of the Trial of the Century is not over. More news will come out of Las Vegas on the coming weeks.

  1. For those of us who have been in Navarro’s courtroom throughout these trials, her sudden fit of outrage at Myhre rings false. Early on, she facilitated Myhre and Co in every move they made, while leaving the defense gagged and hogtied. The dramatic refusal of the defense team to make any closing arguments is proof of this, as they were demonstrating how powerless they were under Navarro’s onslaught against any fair due process. Navarro would have been quite happy to see the accused sent to prison for the rest of their lives. It was only after the Govt case started going sour – about the time of the Rugwell testimony – that Navarro started distancing herself from her team at the Govt table, and started making conciliatory gestures to the accused, like granting long overdue PTR to the Bundys. The Wooten bombshell and the public revelation of Myhre’s gross misconduct made up Navarro’s mind – time to cut and run. She wasn’t going down with the ship. It is apparent now that her scathing diatribe against Myhre was all for show, as regardless of his defalcations, he has sailed on, now put in charge of the Mandelay Bay prosecution. Navarro’s anger at Myhre was more akin to a supervisor’s anger at an underling who has mangled an important project. As team leader and manager, Navarro had given her subordinate – Myhre – every aid and assistance in what appeared to be a slam dunk case, and he STILL dropped the ball. I still can’t believe they will continue with the next trial.
