Charges Filed in Case of Trailhead Car-keying
The man captured on video keying cars at a Jeremy Ranch trailhead last weekend has been charged with three counts of criminal mischief.
Two of the counts filed by the Summit County Attorney’s Office against Park City resident Pierre Bois late Wednesday are felonies, and the other is a class A misdemeanor.
Bois, 61, turned himself in to the Sheriff’s office earlier this week after video footage circulated of him keying cars. He told deputies he was mad at mountain bikers for making a mess and damaging trails.
The court filing says Bois intentionally caused damage to another person’s property resulting in losses between $1500 and $5000 dollars in the case of the felony charges, and damages under $1500 in the misdemeanor charge.
Summit County Attorney Margaret Olson said the maximum possible penalty for third degree felonies is a Prison term of up to 5 years and a $5000 fine plus a 90% surcharge. Penalties for Class A misdemeanors may be up to a year in jail and a $2500 fine plus a 90% surcharge.
Three of four vehicle owners have provided estimates for repairs to the attorney’s office. Estimates range from about $1400 to $3400
Bois will next appear in third district court to face the charges. A date for that appearance hasn’t been set yet.
