Defendants in attempted robbery, shooting near Colusa Casino back in court today

 

Shantrice Moon-Gomez, 20, and Ysidro Chico Arismendez, 33 – the two individuals who are being charged in connection with the attempted robbery and shooting near Colusa Casino on Feb. 6 – are set to appear in court again this morning, both scheduled on the 8:30 AM calendar.

Moon-Gomez and Arismendez were arrested on Feb. 6, after authorities said they tried to kill a man at the Colusa Rancheria, just outside of Colusa Casino property. The victim, who law enforcement has declined to identify over concerns for his safety, drove a short distance to the casino to seek help after being shot in the chest. The victim survived after being treated at Rideout Memorial Hospital in Marysville.

The pair were arraigned in the Colusa County Superior Court on Feb. 9, three days after the shooting. They last appeared in court on Feb. 21, when Arismendez requested more time to retain an attorney, and Sukhraj S. Pamma was appointed as Moon-Gomez’s public defender. Moon-Gomez had previously said she would retain her own attorney.

At the Feb. 21 hearing, Pamma requested more time to review Moon-Gomez’s case before entering a plea on her behalf, and indicated that he may be seeking a reduction in bail or that Moon-Gomez be released on her own recognizance. Superior Court records show that Pamma will be requesting a bail reduction or own recognizance (OR) release for Moon-Gomez at this morning’s hearing. While she may be granted a reduction in bail for the charges related to the robbery, she is also being charged with violation the terms of her probation, for which District Attorney Matthew Beauchamp is requesting she be held without bail. Moon-Gomez had previously been sentenced to one year of summary probation, effective August 5, 2017, after pleading no contest to a charge of theft of retail merchandise in court on June 27, 2017.

Arismendez is on the calendar for entry of plea and appearance of counsel. He does not yet have an attorney listed on the Colusa County Superior Court website.

Arismendez is being charged with second degree attempted murder and attempted second degree robbery, as well as three special allegations for each of those crimes. He is also being charged with possession of a firearm by a felon. He could potentially be facing a life sentence, and is being held at the Colusa County Jail without bail.

Moon-Gomez is being charged with attempted second degree robbery, along with a special allegation relating to Arismendez’s alleged use of a firearm in the commission of the attempted robbery. ■
