A 28-year-old man arrested near the Logan Golf and Country Club after a high-speed chase with police in April has asked for a jury trial.
According to Cache County prosecutor Griffin Hazard, Albert Hernandez considered entering a guilty plea to settle his cases during Monday’s court hearing, but changed his mind.
A two-day jury trial is currently scheduled for Aug. 29 and 30.
Hernandez was reportedly caught in the act of a storage shed burglary in North Logan on March 23, and according to police, Hernandez fled in a stolen vehicle, leading officers on a chase that ended in a crash at the Logan Golf and Country Club.
This event appears to have been the beginning of a weekslong crime spree, as Hernandez was charged with more than 40 crimes that allegedly occurred during March and April.
Hernandez has been charged with assault on a police officer, failure to stop at the command of a police officer, reckless driving, multiple counts of theft, burglary, burglary of vehicles, theft by receiving stolen property and criminal mischief.
The man was taken into custody two weeks later in a high-risk arrest that captured a lot of attention because he was captured at 600 North just off of Main Street. Police expected he would run, so a SWAT team was ready and waiting when police made their move.
Hernandez is currently being held in the Cache County Jail without bail.
