Page 6 lllbe CATALINA iS~ Friday, June 9, 2006 Friday, May 26 was a very busy day at the Catalina Court House. Several cases were handled by Judge Pete Mirich. Sixteen cases were handled, but two major cases got every- one's attention: Casey Holt faced charges of possession of destruc- tive devices and two probation violation cases. Defense Attorney Ted Veganes was waiting for a medical report from doctors to review Holt's mental health. On Friday, June 2, Holt was sentenced to 16 months in state prison. Holt was held responsible for putting an explosive device in the waste stream that critically injured the hand of an employee at Seag- ull Sanitation in January. The other case involved Christopher Arneson, who was facing charges of burglary. He pleaded no contest and received two years in state prison. Howev- ,er, because of overcrowded jails, Ameson will only serve about one year in jail, minus the time he has served since he was first arrested. The judge told Ames0n that because of Iris previous felony con- viction, under California's three strikes law, if he ever commits a felony again he could face between 25 years to life in state prison."
