Dustin Chauncey seeks representation from Neb. Commission of Public Advocacy

Posted: Updated:

The man accused of murdering a Gering toddler back in 2008 will be back in Scotts Bluff County District Court this afternoon.

27-year-old Dustin Chauncey has requested that the Nebraska Commission on Public Advocacy be appointed to represent him.

In a letter addressed to Judge Leo Dobrovolny, Chauncey claims that since he does not have "tens of thousands of dollars needed to get adequate representation," he was appointed a public defender who "has far too many cases to give my case adequate time and representation."

Chauncey says that his case is eligible to be represented by the Commission of Public Advocacy.

He is charged with manslaughter and intentional child abuse causing death. The charges follow a January Grand Jury indictment relating to the murder of two year old Juliette Geurts.

The hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m. in Scotts Bluff County District Courtroom #1.
