BAKERSFIELD – A California City man was sentenced to 4-years in prison when he appeared in court on March 25th; 41-year old Robert Dean Neice pled No Contest to the charge of Reckless Evading Peace Officer - (eff. 4/12) on Jan. 15th of this year.

  As we first reported in July 2019; police arrested Neice after he led officers on a high speed chase from California City to Kramer Junction in San Bernardino County. According to a press released dated June 17, 2019, at approximately 4 p.m. California City Police officers responded to a report of a man hitting a woman in the Aspen Mall. When officers arrived, Neice fled in a Green Suburban on California City Blvd heading towards Highway 58. According to police reports, speeds reached 100 MPH along eastbound highway 58; Neice ultimately pulled into the Pilot Travel Center in Kramer Junction where he surrendered and was arrested without incident. Luckily, no one was injured in the chase.

  Neice appeared for a Felony Arraignment on June 19, 2019 and after a Pre-Preliminary and Preliminary Hearing, the case was moved to Bakersfield where Neice appeared for another Felony Arraignment on July 11, 2019. A Motion for Release of Exhibits, Set Aside Information – PC 995, Motion for Discovery – Pitchness and Readiness Hearings were heard from August 5, 2019 through January 15, 2021 where he finally pled No Contest. Neice was on out on $30,000 bail when he was arrested again on Sept. 28, 2020 on Suspicion of Possess Narcotic Controlled Substance (dismissed on Jan. 15, 2021).

  Neice received a sentence of 4 years in the custody of the California Department of Corrections with 388 days credit for time served, fined a total of $370 and will most likely be on parole when he’s released from prison.
