4gk Wednesday, Nov, 7, 2001 Court and County News I I By Dave Keller Staff Writer A trio of Plumas County residents face potential state prison sentences in unrelated stabbing cases. Two of the suspects have been convicted on felony criminal com- plaints, while the third suspect is being sought by law enforcement of. ficials. Ricky W. Elkins, 42, was arrested last week after he stabbed a man at a Halloween party in Sloat. The Quincy resident pled no con- test last week in Plumas County Su- perior Court to a felony count of bat- tery with serious bodily harm. The second count--assault with a deadly weapon--will be dismissed when Elkins is sentenced. Under the terms of his lJIea, Elkins' potential sentences range from probation with a year in coun- ty jail to four years in state prison. Elkins will remain in jail until he is sentenced Dec. 3 by Plumas Coun- ty Superior Court Judge Ira R. Kauf- man. Kaufman ordered the probation department to put together a report to assist him in sentencing Elkins. Before he entered his plea, Elkins waived a series of c~nstitutional rights. Elkins also agreed to give up his right to ever own firearms again. Meanwhile, Jonathan D. Derrick, 26, was arrested in the parking lot of a Quincy business after he stabbed himself. Derrick pled no contest last week t> threatening to harm a sheriffs deputy with a knife. The other four felony counts in the case--brandishing a knife to avoid arrest, making death threats, burglary and damaging property-- will be dismissed when Derrick is sentenced. However, Derrick agreed to allow Kaufman to consider the other al- leged offenses when he sentences the defendant or orders a fine or restitution. Under the terms of his plea, Der- rick's potential sentences range from probation with a year in coun- ty jail to three years in state prison. Derrick will remain in jail until he is sentenced Dec. 3 by Kaufman. Kaufman ordered the probation department to put together a report to assist him in sentencing Derrick, as well.

She is being sought stabbing By Dave Keller Staff Writer In one of the first meth lab trials in Plumas County, ju- rors will be asked, starting Jan. 15, to decide the fate of Ray and Joella Tiradeau. The husband and wife will be tried on felony counts of making meth, possessing the ingredients used for meth and other related offenses. The Tiradeaus' home was raided more than a year ago by law enforcement officials. They recovered meth, a pipe and items often associ- ated with making meth. Two other defendants in the case, Mary Abbott and Alan Lackey, already have pled guilty and been sen- tenced in the case. Abbott was ordered in March to serve a year in jail and placed on probation for three years. Lackey was sentenced to serve four years in state prison in October but was later sent to the California Rehabilitation Center when it was determined he is a drug addict.
