Trial set for man who allegedly tried to kill household member


The Superior Court has scheduled the trial for a man who allegedly tried to kill a household member and assaulted a police officer.

At a hearing last week, Superior Court Associate Judge Joseph N. Camacho scheduled the trial of Probio S. Cabrera III for Dec. 9, 2020, at 9am.

Cabrera, 19, pleaded not guilty to the charges of assault, assault and battery, disturbing the peace, and resisting arrest.

Camacho, after finding no other pending matters, also scheduled a pretrial conference for Nov. 18, 2020, at 10am.

Assistant attorney general Steve Kessel serves as counsel for the government, while assistant public defender Jean Pierre Nogues represented Cabrera.

According to court documents, Cabrera threatened to kill a male household member and struck the household member with his hand back in June 17, 2020. When police arrived and attempted to arrest Cabrera, he allegedly pulled away and kicked the arresting police officer.

Cabrera was not arrested, but instead, appeared before Presiding Judge Roberto C. Naraja last Aug. 3 pursuant to a penal summons that was issued to him personally.
