[Excerpts] A charge of domestic violence against an Elko County sheriff’s deputy was dismissed last month during a trial. Acting Justice of the Peace Terri Feasel dismissed a charge of battery constituting domestic violence or, in the alternative, battery, against Jon Ames during his Oct. 2 trial. District Attorney Gary Woodbury argued the case because the defendant is a member of law enforcement. He said Tuesday he could not comment on Feasel’s decision to dismiss the charge against Ames after hearing the prosecution’s case because “I did not understand the dismissal myself”... At the time of Ames’ arrest, Gailey said the sheriff’s office could still do its own internal investigation if he was found not guilty. However, the sheriff’s office has decided not to investigate. Ames was accused of pushing his live-in girlfriend into closet doors when she attempted to leave the home... he was accused of calling her names, breaking objects and pushing her, then trying to take the license plates from her car before she could leave...

  1. The reason why this was dismissed was because it became clear the defendant had lied when additional testimony was offered. In point of fact, the additional testimony came from a relative of the victim who was at the scene when the alleged abuse occurred. This is a matter of public record btw.... So before you put something on the Internet to remain here FOREVER for people to read perhaps you should fact check. A former girlfriend of deputy Ames also wrote an editorial that was published in the Elko Daily Free Press in reference to his character when they were together. She was quite clear that not only is Deputy Ames non violent, but does not even tend to raise his voice in an argument. Just think if this is still online for everyone to see, the truth should be told.

    1. Still waiting for the "public record" of which you speak. Anyone can say anything and until you show something to back up what you've said, you've said nothing.

  2. Feel free to submit this pubicl record of which you speak. Anyone can say anything. If it's true it is. If it's not, it's not. Open to either.

    When a dog bites folks say I don't know why he did that! He's never done that before! It doesn't mean he didn't bite.

    Why would the DA be evil and target Ames? Somebody needs to speak to that. That's not what DA's normally do. They take a RISK in prosecuting officers because they NEED officers in order to prosecute most of their cases. They don't proceed unless they have enough in front of them to be sure.

    The judge gave no reason for dismissal and the only guess offered was because Ames is an officer.

    So as I said, feel free to submit the public record that proves the said-victim lied. It must consist of more than one person saying something different from their own experience at a different earlier time though.

    The excerpt above said the case was dismissed. I didn't comment on that. But if you want to go into the details with documents, lets. What often happens though is people step forward with intentions of defending the accused and end up stirring up further doubt.

    INVESTIGATE?
