LAS VEGAS (AP) - Another California court date has been set for former Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks on charges stemming from a car chase and police confrontation in March.
Attorneys for Brooks asked a judge at a Victorville, Calif. court Friday for more time to work on the case. Another hearing has been set for June 18.
Brooks' defense had asked earlier this month that he be enrolled in a mental health court program that would allow him out on probation and hold him accountable for receiving mental health treatment. That plan was rejected.
Brooks has been in a San Bernardino County jail since his March 28 arrest along Interstate 15 in Victorville.
That came the same day Nevada lawmakers voted to expel Brooks from the Legislature following his streak of erratic behavior.
