Judge Denies Bail Reduction Request
Judge Krista Martin denied a request to reduce bail for the man accused of burglarizing the Pine City American Legion. Jonathon Nickey, 30, made the request Monday in Pine County Court. He is charged with third degree burglary for breaking into the Pine City American Legion on Saturday, July 18th.
The Brainerd resident allegedly broke into the American Legion using the back fire door stealing bottles of liquor and beer. Repairs are expected to cost a couple hundred dollars.
Nickey said in court last week that he plans on taking the case to trial because of lack of evidence.
Nickey does has previous felony convictions, including two in 2007, one for third degree burglary and the other for assaulting a peace officer.
