Rural Nevada Sheriff Facing Third Ethics Complaint, Possible $8,000 Fine

By Riley Snyder, The Nevada Independent State ethics officials are seeking to discipline an embattled rural Nevada sheriff for allegedly using his office during off-hours to host a child visitation between his wife and her ex-husband. Storey County Sheriff Gerald Antinoro, who won re-election to another four-year term earlier this month, is facing a potential $8,000 fine amid a third publicized complaint in five years submitted to the Nevada Commission on Ethics. Members of the commission held a hearing last week over allegations raised in the complaint, and ordered another evidentiary hearing — and where a decision on whether or not Antinoro willfully violated state ethics rules will probably be made — to be held sometime in August or October. Commission Executive Director Yvonne Nevarez-Goodson said an order setting the future hearing would be published later this week. The complaint was filed in June 2017 by the ex-husband of Antinoro’s current wife, who said a planned visitation with the couple’s daughter was at the last minute moved from a Virginia City park to the Storey County Sheriff’s office.

Sessions Defends Immigration Policy at Speech in Reno

By Daniel Rothberg, The Nevada Independent After a week of outcry over an immigration policy that separated families at the border, one of the policy’s chief proponents, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, defended the administration’s hawkish approach during a speech to a school safety conference in Reno Monday morning. Sessions said although the administration will try to prevent further family separations, it will continue to criminally prosecute border crossings under its “zero-tolerance” policy. “The president has made this clear,” he said. “We are going to continue to prosecute those adults who enter here illegally. We are going to do everything in our power, however, to avoid separating families. All federal agencies are working hard to accomplish this goal.” During the speech, Sessions also announced $2 million in additional funding for first responders to the Oct. 1 shooting on the Las Vegas Strip, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. “We recognize the heroic work done by police that day,” Sessions said. The speech from the country’s top law enforcement officer came amid continued uproar over the Trump administration’s aggressive border policy, which left thousands of children separated from their parents in detention centers, and a tweet from President Donald Trump advocating for denying due process to those who cross the border. Over the weekend, Trump tweeted: “We cannot allow all of these people to invade our Country. When somebody comes...
