Court proceedings stall for woman accused of attacking cop

A preliminary hearing was cancelled last week for a Colusa woman, with a long history of violence, to determine if she is mentally capable of aiding in her defense.

Patricia Wesley, 25, is accused of trying to attack a Williams Police officer with a large kitchen knife on April 8, when the officer responded to her mother’s home in the senior complex on Marguerite St., in Williams.

Wesley was more subdued during court proceedings on April 29 than she was during her first appearance, when her outbursts were silenced by the judge.

On April 28, however, Wesley reportedly had a violent incident at the Colusa County Jail, where she has been held on $65,000 bail since her arrest.

Wesley is now classified as a maximum security inmate and is being housed in a single cell, said Assistant Sheriff Mike Bradwell. She has also received one disciplinary report which could effect her sentencing, if convicted.

Public Defender Albert Smith said in court last week that Wesley is in need of drug intervention through detox.

Judge Jeffrey A. Thompon has ordered her to undergo psychiatric evaluations by two doctors before criminal proceedings can begin again.

Wesley has been charged with assaulting a peace officer, resisting an executive officer, three charges of being under the influence of a controlled substance, and DUI.

Wesley is facing up to five years in state prison on each of the serious felonies, one year in jail on the DUI, and fines up to $20,000, officials said.

She has pleaded not guilty. She is scheduled to appear in court on May 20 for the results of her evaluations.
