    Advisement And Bond Hearing In Case Of Kenneth Hosch

    Kenneth Martin Hosch, 83, was in Jefferson County Court today where he was advised of the charges that have been filed against him in the death of Jefferson County Sheriff’s Sergeant Dave Baldwin on January 26. Hosch has been charged with one count of Vehicular Homicide (F4) and one count of Criminally Negligent Homicide (F5).

    The court also heard two motions today regarding modification of Mr. Hosch’s bond. Prosecutors filed a motion with the court asking that Mr. Hosch not be allowed to drive any motor vehicle as a condition of bond. The defense attorney objected to the motion, saying that Mr. Hosch has the right to drive an automobile and that considering his prior driving history would be prejudicial towards Mr. Hosch. Judge Ryan Stuart granted the prosecution motion prohibiting Mr. Hosch from driving a motor vehicle.

    The defense filed a motion requesting that Mr. Hosch be allowed to visit his daughter in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Judge Stuart granted that motion with the condition that Pre-trial Services supervise the travel.

    A dispositional hearing has been set on April 11 at 8:30 in Division A. Mr. Hosch is out on $10,000 bond.
