Judge Sets Clint Webb’s Trial For July 27
Clint Webb, accused of trying to kill his wife by running her down in his car, will go on trial the week of July 27, Natrona County District Court Judge Daniel Forgey said Wednesday.
The court will hold motions hearings in June, Forgey told Assistant District Attorney Dan Itzen and Webb's public defender Tracy Hucke.
The five-day trial will come five months after he pleaded not guilty during his arraignment in February to one charge of attempted second degree murder, two counts of aggravated assault, one count of property destruction and one count of interference with a peace officer.
If convicted, he could face between 20 years to life in prison on the attempted second degree murder charge, and up to 10 years in prison on each of the other charges.
The case began in late June when Webb tried to run over his wife, Julie, and crashed into several other vehicles, according to police reports
She was driving westbound on East 12th Street when he was driving south on Payne. He ran the stop sign and rammed her vehicle with his.
After she got out of her car, Webb drove around the block and tried to run her over, while she was standing on a neighbors’ front lawn.
His vehicle eventually became inoperable, but he was able to get another vehicle and drive to Las Vegas, Nev., where he turned himself in.
Officers later learned that Julie had a protection order against him.
One of Webb's co-workers said earlier that day he been served divorce papers while at work, and he went home early.
In late October, Webb was scheduled to have a preliminary hearing, but instead was ordered to undergo a mental evaluation.
Shortly after being escorted out of the courtroom, a Natrona County Sheriff’s Deputy said Webb tried to head-butt him several times.
Both men ended up on the floor, and the deputy ended up going to the hospital.
Webb is being held on $100,000 bond.
