KINGMAN - More than a year has passed since Jack Taylor Lagerwey allegedly stole a trailer and led Kingman Police on a chase before he crashed into another motorist.

Lagerwey, 44, was injured in the crash he allegedly caused when he ran a red light on Bank Street at Gordon Drive Jan. 28, 2012. He left Kingman Regional Medical Center - with tubes still inserted in his body - before officers could arrest him.

Lagerwey was recaptured not long afterward and was ultimately indicted on several counts, including theft of means of transportation, unlawful flight from pursuing law enforcement vehicle, possession of marijuana, two counts of aggravated assault with use of a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument, and criminal damage.

His trial on those charges was scheduled to begin later this month, but Lagerwey's attorney requested a postponement while the defendant seeks to resolve medical issues, including undergoing at least one surgery.

He appeared hobbled and used a cane to move around at what was supposed to be his final hearing before trial on Monday.

Judge Steven Conn agreed to move the trial date to April 22, but he warned Lagerwey and his attorney the court would not wait for him to reach "perfect health" before a trial would be held.

The judge also said delaying the case until Lagerwey is on the mend would save taxpayers from having to pay for his care if he were to be convicted and sent to prison.

Conn left little doubt that is where Lagerwey will likely go if he is convicted given his criminal record, which is similar to the charges he now faces.

He was convicted of leaving the scene of an accident that involved injury or death in 1996, theft of means of transportation in 2005 and aggravated assault, also in 2005.
