A1 6 Roselles enters into pretrial diversion agreement for fleeing the scene case BY AMY EFTA Sidney Police Sgt. Alex Roselles entered into a pretri- al diversion agreement with the state on Tuesday, Sept. 3, for charges of leaving the scene of an accident and basic rule — reasonable and prudent, both misdemeanors. A pretrial agreement is made between the prosecutor and the defendant’s attorney. In this case, Roselles acted on his own behalf. The prosecution of Roselles, per the agreement, is deferred until Feb. 22, 2020. During that period of time, Roselles must abide by the following condi- tions: obey all laws, federal, state, county, city and town; pay a fine of $400 to Richland County Justice Court; com- plete 20 hours of community service and provide proof by Dec. 31, 2019. Upon compli- ance with conditions, charges will be dismissed with preju- dice. lf Roselles fails to comply with conditions, prosecution of charges can be filed.

Charging documents state on Feb. 11, 2019, Roselles was in an automobile accident that caused more than $1,000 worth of damage to his vehicle‘and left the scene without permis- sion from law enforcement. The second charge stems from the defendant operating the vehicle in a manner not reasonable or prudent under the conditions at the time. In a sworn statement, Rich- land County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Rhema Keller said he came across the accident at 1:07 a.m. on Feb. 11 on High- way 200 north of Sidney at the intersection of County Road 351. Roselles’ red pickup was upside down in the ditch and footprints led away from the vehicle. Keller was not able to make ‘contact with Roselles in per- See ROSELLES, Page 16 products.
