    The words stuck in his throat. DA Bryce Shields was telling Judge Jim Shirley why David Lavern Tarbert deserved prison rather than probation.
    “This is not a probation case,” he said. The DA, a father of young children, has held the office since 2015.
    On Sept. 4, 2019, the court arraigned Tarbert on charges of sex assault and lewd conduct with children. The victims are Tarbert’s grandchildren, ages three, four and seven at the time of the abuse.

    The 11th Judicial convened on Monday, Dec. 2. Outside, winter storms brewed. Hazardous driving conditions prevented a few defendants from attending their hearings, but two Pershing County men had their day in court.
    It was Judge Jim Shirley’s second attempt at arraigning Joel Adam Marcelja, 38.
    Immediately following his Nov. 4 arraignment, Marcelja tested positive for his drug of choice, methamphetamine.
    To protect the defendant’s rights, the court had to nullify the Nov. 4 arraignment. They’d schedule a do-over. The question was how to ensure Marcelja showed up clean and sober.  Jailing him might be the surest way. Defense Attorney Kyle Swanson and DDA Todd Banks differed on how the court should respond.
