Police Beating Suspect in Court

Posted: Updated:

The man accused of beating a Minot police officer unconscious has entered a plea of not guilty.

22-year-old Jesse Ili-lee pleaded not guilty to a total of six count against him today.

He's accused of three felonies - including aggravated assault and assault on a peace officer, and three misdemeanors in connection with an incident in late August in Minot.

Investigators say Ili slammed the head of one officer against a retaining wall post until the officer lost consciousness.

The also allege that he punched another officer twice.

In court today, Judge Richard Hagar ruled there was sufficient evidence for the case to proceed.

Following the not guilty pleas, Ili's attorney asked for permission for his client to go home to California.

Judge Hagar told him to make the request in a formal motion to the court for his consideration.

Ili is free on bond awaiting his next court date - a pre-trial hearing in mid-December.
