WALLA WALLA – Skyler Ian Glasby, 31, of Dayton entered a not guilty plea on several charges, including assault and unlawful imprisonment, stemming from a domestic violence arrest earlier this month. Prosecuting Attorney Jim Nagle said the suspect will stand trail beginning Nov. 17 at Walla Walla County Superior Court. A pre-trial hearing is scheduled for Oct. 28.

Glasby is charged with second-degree assault, unlawful imprisonment, harassment, and fourth-degree assault. The second-degree assault charge carries a possible sentence of 10 years. The other three charges combined could mean one day short of 11 years in prison.

Glasby had been released from an Oregon prison after successfully appealing a case involving kidnapping and assault in Milton-Freewater in 2018. The Oregon Court of Appeals ordered a new trial because the judge in his first trial ignored his repeated requests for a replacement of counsel or to serve as his own attorney.

Umatilla County Chief Deputy District Attorney Jaclyn Jenkins said that Glasby’s retrial will be held January 4-8, 2021 in Hermiston before Sixth Circuit Court Judge Dan Hill.
