Nye County Court Reports

By Eunette Gentry

 

Mitchell Robinson – the 21 year-old Pahrump man facing the charge of “Murder” after being arrested on September 9, 2017, under suspicion of “causing the death of his six month old child” – remains “In Custody: No Bail”, after having his case bound over to District Court.  Robinson was arrested first – after detectives” say during their “interview” with the father, “he admitted to shaking his baby several times on the day the infant stopped breathing.”  Then, the child’s 22 year-old mother, Amanda Ellyn Ramsey, was arrested on October 25, 2017, for “Child Abuse” charges connected to the death of her “6-month-old” child.  “The Nye County DA’s office obtained a warrant…for Ramsey[’s] arrest – after…detectives discovered additional evidence indicating that Ramsey had been aware of several prior occasions when Robinson has physically abused their child.  [Police say] the evidence further showed that Ramsey…failed to not only protect the child, but had also been part of several [abusive] acts prior to the child’s death.”  The child’s father, Robinson, had a “Preliminary Hearing” scheduled on September 6, 2018, but it was “Vacated”.  During Robinson’s last court proceeding – A Motion Hearing on August 30, 2018:  “[The Prosecuting attorney] briefed the record, pursuant to negotiations the defendant will unconditionally waive Preliminary Hearing and enter a guilty plea in District Court to one count child abuse with substantial bodily harm, a category 'B' felony with an exposure of 2-20 years in prison.  At time of Sentencing, both parties will recommend a prison sentence of 8-20 years.  The State will forgo prosecution of all other charges arising from this incident. [Robinson’s Public Defender,] attorney [Daniel] Martinez concurred.  [The] defendant was screened as to his understanding and acceptance of the negotiations and the rights he would be waiving by entering into said negotiations.  [Robinson] stated he understood.  The court found that [Robinson] has knowingly and voluntarily waived his right to Preliminary Hearing and ordered that he be bound over to appear in…District Court...  [Then,] the court ordered [Robinson’s] Preliminary Hearing [in] Justice Court [to be] Vacated and the defendant was remanded to the custody of the Nye County Detention [Center].”
