Alleged Hell's Angels Member Enters Not Guilty Plea

Justin Seliskar, 31, of Sturbridge Drive in Medina appeared in Judge Kimbler's courtroom by video arraignment on Monday, January 10, 2011, and entered a not guilty plea to one count of Complicity to Commit Felonious Assault, a second degree felony. During the arraignment Medina County Prosecutor Dean Holman, representing the State of Ohio, stated that additional charges may be forthcoming. Judge Kimbler set a trial date of March 14, 2011 and continued the bond he had previously set at $1,000,000.00. Mr. Seliskar was represented by Attorney Ralph Buss of Painesville, Ohio.

Originally Mr. Seliskar's case was assigned to Judge Collier, but the Medina County Prosecutor's office filed a motion to transfer the case to Judge Kimbler's docket. The reason for the request was that there is an alleged co-defendant and his case was assigned to Judge Kimbler's docket. The State wanted both cases assigned to the same judge since it plans to file a motion to consolidate the cases for trial. Judge Collier who as administrative judge for the General Division of the Medina County Common Pleas Court for 2011 has the power to order such transfers granted the State's motion.
