Torrington, Wyo. March 2, 2020 (By Denise Heilbrun-Ellis) — Earlier this month Jaedan Trey Redder pleaded not guilty to a felony count of aggravated battery and will stand trial on June 29, at 9 am. He is being represented by attorney Christopher Humphrey.
The charge stems from Redder being accused of shooting a Torrington man, Austin Peters in the stomach, causing bodily harm, on Dec. 13, 2019.
According to Goshen County Sheriff’s report, an officer stopped a speeding vehicle. The driver told the officer they were on their way to the ER to get assistance for a gunshot wound.
According to the affidavit of Probable Cause two witnesses stated they saw Redder put a gun (Glock 19) to Peters head while he was seated. Both witnesses said they saw Peters grab the gun and pull it toward his stomach and the gun went off.
After the shooting two witnesses went with Redder, drove to the country and threw out the gun. The witnesses took officers to the location where the gun was tossed out and it was found.
Also Redder is ordered to report to Peak Wellness for substance abuse assistance and follow their recommendations, report daily for random drug and alcohol testing at the Goshen County Detention Center. He is to have no contact with the victim or witnesses, ordered not to leave the county, and report to New Hope Counseling plus follow up on their recommendations.
Redder’s bond was originally set at $25,000 cash or surety, but was reduced during his arraignment on Feb. 8, amount to 10 percent of $10,000, or $1,000. As of this date, Redder is still incarcerated at the Goshen County Detention Center.
If Redder is found guilty of the felony charge he could face up to a maximum sentence of 10 years/and or a $10,000 fine.
