Clark County court records acquired by the Review-Journal allege that a guy killed by cops during a SWAT standoff Sunday morning molested 2 female relatives, as young as 7 years old, for almost a years.
William Lee Snider, 57, was shot by authorities in front of his home, in the 400 block of Lakehurst Roadway, near the Alta Drive and Antelope Method crossway, after hours of efforts to obtain the guy to put down the rifle he was carrying, police stated. Snider passed away from numerous gunshot wounds, the Clark County coroner’s workplace stated.
Neighbors informed the Review-Journal that Snider was shot by SWAT team snipers a little before 10 a.m. Sunday, more than two hours after officers first showed up. A cellular phone recording of the event made by a neighbor to reveal the guy intending the rifle towards what was said to be officers.
County district court records reveal that Snider plead guilty to a felony charge of sexually inspired threat and accepted an offer to serve between one and six years in prison.
The case versus Snider, filed in March 2003, originally noted 51 charges, including 20 counts of lewdness with a minor under 14 years old, 18 counts of sexual attack versus a minor under 14 years old and four counts of sexual assault against a minor under 16 years of ages. A 2003 arrest warrant for Snider asserts the male abused among the ladies starting when she was 7 years old up until she was 15. Accusations throughout the court records consisted of fondling and various type of penetration.
Snider was needed to sign up as a sex wrongdoer after his release.
Extra information about why the original charges were plead down was not readily available Monday night. Sniders family could not be reached for comment.
Metro’s policy is to release the names of the officers involved 48 hours after the event and hold a comprehensive press instruction after 72 hours.
