ALAMOSA — One of the men who was allegedly involved in a drug-related August assault on a State Avenue home appears to be open to the possibility of a plea agreement.
But David Cordova’s attorney said he and his client need more time to work things out with prosecutors, leading 12th Judicial District Judge Pattie Swift to continue Cordova’s first appearance from Dec. 3 to Jan 10, 2013. A second suspect, Mario Aragon, is scheduled to return to court that same day.
Both men, along with Lakewood resident Joseph Ankeney, were taken into custody last August on charges of first-degree burglary, second-degree assault, unlawful use of a stun gun, conspiracy and theft.
According to police reports, the suspects were allegedly seeking drugs, money and electronics from a home in the 1200 block of State Avenue.
A fourth suspect, Colin Young, was flown to a Lakewood hospital for treatment of injuries he sustained during the alleged incident.
