Car-dragging charges dropped against Crazyboy
June 17, 2014
The charges against the second defendant accused of dragging her niece with a car and nearly running her over have gone away.
The Hill County Attorney asked the judge to dismiss charges against Gloria Crazyboy, born in 1976, saying the prosecution was not able to contact the niece so she could testify in Crazyboy’s trial.
Because some conflicting testimony had arisen, without the niece to testify the prosecution believed it would not be able to convict, the motion to dismiss says.
State District Judge Dan Boucher granted the motion to dismiss the charges.
In May, Boucher sentenced co-defendant Leslie Crazyboy, born in 1979, to three years, all suspended, with credit for 131 days served.
Leslie Crazyboy pleaded guilty in a plea agreement in April to a felony count of criminal endangerment.
The accusations said Leslie Crazyboy drove away in a vehicle after Gloria Crazyboy grabbed a purse belonging to their niece, who was in the area from out of state visiting her relatives, while the neice was struggling with Gloria Crazyboy, who was in the vehicle. The niece told investigating officers she thought she was going to be run over and had to push herself off a tire of the vehicle using her foot.
