(Neb.)- Former CSC Football Player Granted Motion To Set Aside Conviction
(Chadron)- Former Chadron State College football player Desmond Rogers was in Dawes County district court on Tuesday morning filing a motion to set aside his conviction stemming from a 2009 arrest on possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver on college property.
Rogers says that he is now a student at Sacramento State University with intentions on graduating in the spring of 2014. In a plea to district court judge Travis O’Gorman, Rogers said he felt his conviction would be a hindrance on any future career choices, and in looking for work. Upon hearing statements from Rogers, Judge O’Gorman approved the motion to set aside the conviction, which led to a fine being paid by Rogers following the guilty ruling.
Alden Reynolds also appeared in district court Tuesday morning for a status hearing. Reynolds pleaded guilty to two counts of 3rd degree domestic assault as a result from separate incidents in January and February of this year. He also pleaded guilty to one count of failure to appear on bond. Together those charges can carry a possibility of a maximum sentence of two and a half years in prison.
Sentencing for Alden Reynolds has been set for August 27th at 11:00 a.m. in the Dawes County district court.
