Nye County Court Reports

By Eunette Gentry

Jayme McCoy, the Pahrump man arrested on June 6, 2018 and charged with “Indecent or Obscene Exposure” after witnesses say he caused “a disturbance” inside an area McDonalds – due to reportedly “exposing” his genitals while walking around in that restaurant – is due in District Court on Monday July 16th, for his “Arraignment”.  McCoy was Bound-Over to that higher court after being ordered to undergo a Mental “Competency Evaluation”.  On the date of his arrest, police say:  “shortly after receiving his food, [McCoy] was walking around inside [McDonald’s] with his pants hanging down exposing [himself] to staff and other patrons.  [Then, when] staff members told McCoy to pull his pants up, he began yelling at them, calling them names, and then walked out.”  During McCoy’s “First Appearance” in Justice Court, on June 7th:  “the court advised [the] defendant that probable cause was found and [McCoy’s] bail [was] set at $2,000 cash or bond.  [The] defendant was screened as to his financial status.  [Subsequently,] the court appointed attorney [Jason] Earnest to represent [McCoy as his Public Defender].  [Then,] the court set Formal Arraignment for June 13th.”  However on that court date:  “Attorney Earnest briefed the record that the defendant will be conditionally waiving his Preliminary Hearing for the purposes of a Competency Evaluation.  [The Prosecuting Attorney] had no opposition.  [So, a] conditional waiver of Preliminary Hearing [was] signed and filed by Attorney Earnest on the defendant's behalf.  [During the conclusion of that court proceeding,] the court ordered [McCoy] bound over to appear for Arraignment in…District Court on July 16th.”
