Three charges answered: not guilty
A Pablo woman is facing three trials in November that stem from three separate criminal matters. Shanice Annalyn Miles, 20, entered pleas of not guilty at District Court in Polson on April 15 to felony charges of theft, criminal endangerment and burglary.
According to court records, she was caught in possession of a stolen 2000 Lincoln Continental in Polson on Dec. 24, 2020, which resulted in a theft charge.
The criminal endangerment charge stems from a car wreck that occurred on Jan. 12 when the vehicle, allegedly driven by Miles, ran through a red light at the junction of U.S. Highway 93 and state Highway 35. The vehicle she is alleged to have been driving was crashed into a retaining wall. A blood sample showed Miles had three times the legal limit of marijuana in her system, along with methamphetamine.
The burglary charge was issued after Miles was alleged to have attempted to steal items from a grocery store in Pablo on Feb. 17.
District Judge Deborah “Kim” Christopher set all three matters for trial on Nov. 8. William Joseph Weatherwax, who was a codefendant in the car theft case, pled not guilty to theft on April 22. Judge Christopher set his case for trial on Nov. 8.
Weatherwax is at liberty while Miles remains in the Lake County jail with bail set at $70,000.
