Sibley, Iowa — A hearing has been postponed in one of the cases regarding an alleged robbery in Osceola County.
Court records indicate the four people are accused in the armed robbery of an occupied home on Third Avenue in Sibley.
The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office reported that on August 21, 2016, their deputies arrested 35-year-old Jose Manuel Maldonado Castillo of Sibley on charges of Robbery in the 1st Degree, a class B Felony; two counts of Assault while Participating in a Felony; Going Armed with Intent; Interference with Official Acts with a Dangerous Weapon; and Unauthorized Possession of a Dangerous Weapon, all class D Felonies. They said they also arrested 25-year-old Peter Nazario Alvira of Sibley, as well as 55-year-old Pedro Juan Figueroa Rios and 38-year-old Nicomedes Montanez Cruz, both of Sioux City — and charged them all with Robbery in the 1st Degree, a class B Felony.
In Nazario Alvira’s case, a pretrial conference is scheduled for November 10th, with a jury trial on December 20th. His attorney, John Sandy, has asked for the trial to be postponed. The court has not ruled on that motion, but had set a hearing for this Friday, October 14th. Sandy moved that the hearing also be postponed. Judge Carl Petersen approved that motion and ordered that the hearing be pushed back two weeks to October 28th.
