Notification of Release of Individuals
Saturday, 23 August 2014 08:00
Cherry County Attorney Eric Scott has announced that two individuals have been released from federal prison and are living in the Valentine area. In a notice received from the Prisoner Release Coordinator of the Nebraska Attorney General's office, Scott says both offenders are convicted felons who have been released from prison under stringent supervisory probation conditions, and are living at 521 W. 3rd Street, in the Valentine Apartments.
James W. Menard, age 31, was convicted on felony charges of selling, distributing or dispensing a controlled substance. Menard's probation supervision conditions include a location monitoring program and alcohol or intoxicant restrictions.
Robert K. Garrett, age 31, was a habitual offender on a domestic assault violation. Garrett is also subject to certain probation supervisory conditions.
Nebraska statues require notification of release of individuals convicted of violent crimes or because of the release of an individual who is a sex offender. Both Menard and Garrett fall under the category of violent crime offenders.
