GREELEY, Neb. (AP) — A central Nebraska county commissioner has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor assault.
Fifty one-year-old Joseph Leslie, of Spalding, pleaded not guilty Monday to third-degree assault. Leslie is one of three Greeley County commissioners.
A criminal complaint in online court records accuses Leslie of “intentionally, knowingly or recklessly” causing bodily injury to another, or threatening another in a menacing manner on Aug. 21. The victim is listed as Braden Leslie, but documents don’t list the relationship between the two.
