The Las Vegas Uber carjacking case involving two people, Aveyon Lashawn Nevitt and Raitasha Antoinette Williams-Gardner, could be coming to a close now that both have entered guilty pleas and are awaiting judgement and sentencing.
According to court documents, Nevitt could be agreeable to a 20-year plea agreement.
“My client is waiving any Rule 8 (speedy trial) at this point knowing that we have a lot of work to do, a lot of things to do at the settlement conference,” Gilleo said.
Nevitt’s attorney, Ron Gilleo, told Judge Billy Sipe that he intends to file a motion for severance in his client’s case, as Nevitt is currently being charged alongside Williams-Gardner.
Williams-Gardner’s attorney, Robin Puchek, said Monday that a list of defenses has been filed, which includes a defense of duress of necessity. That defense is applicable when a defendant is forced by natural circumstances to choose between two evils, and the criminal act is the lesser evil.
Donnelda Schuele, the Uber driver who was purported to have been carjacked that night, also gave a statement to the court.
