Jerry DeLemus given new opportunity to contest detention pending trial over Nevada standoff

The Associated Press

CONCORD - Gerald "Jerry" DeLemus, who is facing charges in a 2014 armed standoff in Nevada by ranchers opposed to federal control of public lands, has been given time to seek review of his detention order.

This week, a U.S. magistrate judge denied bail for DeLemus and ordered him extradited to Nevada to face charges. The judge agreed to DeLemus' request to put the transfer on hold Thursday as his lawyer argues against his detention.

The Rochester man is accused of being a "mid-level leader" and organizer of a conspiracy to recruit, organize, train and provide support to armed men and other followers of rancher Cliven Bundy. He was among a dozen people in five states arrested last week.

DeLemus' lawyer said his client had nothing to do with the confrontation.
