News Update!!: Victorville, CA: Man who was beaten by authorities after horse pursuit charged.

The man who was beaten by several San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Deputies after a horse pursuit that was captured by a news helicopter camera on Thursday, April 9th, 2015 arrived at the courthouse on Tuesday, June 16th, 2015 in Victorville, California.

The man, 30 year old Francis Jared Pusok of Apple Valley, California, was reprtedly late to his court arraignment and supposed to be at court at 8:00am PT.

When Francis Jared Pusok didn’t show up to his court arraignment, the judge was about to issue a bench warrant for his arrest, but Francis Jared Pusok would suddenly appeared 3 hours later at 11:00am PT.

Francis Jared Pusok’s Attorney Jim Terrell took the blame for his client being late, but wouldn’t elaborate on how his client could almost miss his court arraignment.

During the court arraignment, Francis Jared Pusok pleaded not guilty to several criminal charges including resisting arrest, and evading arrest in his 3 hour long police pursuit that included a stolen horse which happened before 3:00pm PT on Thursday, April 9th, 2015.

That horse pursuit ended when Francis Jared Pusok fell of the horse and well on the ground, was caught on camera by a news helicopter from NBC affiliate KNBC Channel 4 being beaten by several San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Deputies.

Since the incident, at least 10 San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Deputies are being investigated for the beating of Francis Jared Pusok, and members of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved during a closed session of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors Meeting on Tuesday, April 21st, 2015 in San Bernardino, California to pay $650,000 in a settlement with the San Bernardino County to Francis Jared Pusok in order to avoid a lawsuit.

Francis Jared Pusok’s pregnant girlfriend, 31 year old Jolene Bindner, was formally charged on allegations that she and Francis Jared Pusok were in possession of 3 stolen trailers,

Jolene Bindner pleaded not guilty and the judge allowed Jolene Bindner to remain free because of she is pregnant.

Prosecutors asked the judge to raise Francis Jared Pusok’s bail from $100,000 to $575,000 which the judge set Francis Jared Pusok’s bail at $450,000.

Francis Jared Pusok’s attorney called the set bail a political move because his client was paid $650,000 by the county to prevent lawsuits in the beating case.

Because of Francis Jared Pusok’s bail was raised, Francis Jared Pusok was taken into police custody.

According to Prosecutor Shannon Faherty, what happened in court wasn’t about retaliation, but it was about the law.
