KINGSTON — A suspect in a night of pranks that left two people with bruises from Airsoft pellets has reached a pre-trial agreement with Kitsap County District Court.
Dec. 30, George C. Hill III will serve 200 hours of community service, pay fines and restitution, and agrees to remain law-abiding for five years in a diversion agreement reached with the Prosecuting Attorney's office. Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Barbara Dennis said the diversion agreement is a contract between the defense and the prosecutor’s office.
Hill was charged with three counts of fourth-degree assault, one count of third-degree theft, and one count of third-degree attempted theft in the incident, which occurred June 15.
Jasmine Campbell, a former Miss Viking Fest, Dietrich Rios-Nicolaisen and Brandyn Winkley are also charged with three counts of fourth-degree assault, one count of third-degree theft, and one count of third-degree attempted theft. Campbell asked for her pre-trial hearing to be postponed from Jan. 4 to Feb. 8 at 8:30 a.m.
Rios-Nicolaisen’s next court date is Jan. 10, and Winkley’s is Jan. 17.
Two teen boys involved in the case pleaded guilty in Superior Court Oct. 6; each received a year of probation and 116 hours of community service.
According to the investigator’s Statement of Probable Cause, the group is accused of shooting four people with pellets from Airsoft rifles in the Central Market parking lot in Poulsbo, and shooting two people with pellets in the Wal-Mart parking lot. Two of the victims said “the pellets hurt and left bruises and red marks that lasted several days,” according to the investigator’s report.
The group allegedly ordered $53.75 worth of food at Burger King in Poulsbo and drove away without paying for or picking up the food. The group ordered food at a Wendy’s in Silverdale; Winkley ran between the car and the drive-thru window and tried unsuccessfully to grab the food from the employee’s hands.
The group allegedly did the same thing at a Taco Bell in Silverdale, except when Winkley ran by and grabbed the food the employee’s arm was injured, according to the investigator’s report. The restaurant gave the group a replacement order not knowing Winkley was with them. The suspects only paid for one of the two orders they received, according to the investigator’s report.
