In Monday's Sheridan County Circuit Court, attorney Hardy Tate entered a “Not Guilty” plea on behalf of his client, Elizabeth Baka. Baka is charged with one misdemeanor count of battery for an incident that occurred on June 5th, 2010 where she allegedly hit her boyfriend in the face with a bottle.
Judge John Sampson set an unsecured $1,000 bond.
On a separate case, 50-year-old Clint Boren made his initial appearance before Judge Sampson on a misdemeanor charge of Battery – Domestic Violence. On June 4th, the Affidavit of Probable Cause states, Sgt. Tom Ringley of the Sheridan Police Department arrived at the emergency room of Memorial Hospital in Sheridan in response to a report of domestic violence.
Sgt. Ringley spoke with the victim and noticed an inverted V-shaped gash in her left upper lip. The report states that Ringley could see her teeth through the injury. She told Ringley that her boyfriend, Clint Boren, assaulted her by kicking her. In a separate room, the document indicates, Boren denied striking the victim.
In court, Boren plead “Not Guilty” and Judge Sampson set a $2,500 unsecured bond, also instructing Boren not to have any contact with the victim.
