    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.

    On Nov. 5, 2018, Pershing County’s 11th Judicial Court arraigned Cole Lewis Stremler, 24, on charges of sexual assault and statutory sexual seduction. Stremler’s alleged victim was his adopted sister, 17.
    On May 29, 2019, Stremler pleaded no-contest to the lesser charge of coercion, a non-sexual felony punishable by one to six years in prison. The offense is eligible for probation. The court treats a no contest plea the same as a guilty plea.
    This past Monday, Oct. 28, the defendant came to court for sentencing.
    According to court records, Mike and Barbara Stremler had three biological sons. Later, the Stremlers adopted three African American children, including the victim. The family owned and operated a ranch in Jersey Valley, a remote area of Pershing County. The children attended home school and worked cattle. The older boys hunted and trapped.

    Uriel Pena Castellanos, of Grass Valley, came to court for a sentencing hearing. He previously pleaded guilty to grand larceny of livestock. 
    Kyle Swanson defended Castellanos. Chris Houghton translated all the courtroom proceedings into Spanish, Castellanos’ native language.
    The court rescheduled the sentencing because a potential victim came forward that morning with a restitution claim. Her late husband had purchased one of the rustled cattle. The judge continued the hearing until Nov. 4 to protect the victim’s rights.
