   These are a few of the stories you will find in this week's printed newspaper:

  • Lucky dog: After eight harrowing days lost in the Plumas National Forest, a missing Shetland sheepdog was found. He was hungry, tired, cold, scratched, limping on bloody paws and missing some fur. But his tail was wagging.
  • On trial: The trial for a Quincy man accused of inflicting fatal injuries on a toddler in 2013 is scheduled to begin March 12.
  • Moving on: Just days after Plumas District Hospital announced that it couldn’t take over Quincy Nursing & Rehabilitation, several residents of the facility have found new homes.

   High Desert State Prison Sergeant Todd Posch, who was scheduled for a possible plea Tuesday, April 20, has had his case continued one week to Tuesday, April 27.

 Plumas County District Attorney Jeff Cunan reported after a Tuesday, March 30, pretrial conference the only offer made to the defendant was to plea as charged to two counts of filing a false police report.

  Each charge carries a maximum possible jail sentence of six months for a total exposure of one year.

   Pleading could also leave Posch open to restitution charges.

   The Plumas County Sheriff’s Office has alleged that Posch fabricated two incidents where he reported being assaulted, which resulted in more than $100,000 of state and local funds being expended in investigative and security efforts.

   Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood has made it clear that he expects full restitution from the defendant for expenses incurred by his department.

   Cunan encouraged “those who feel that they were affected by these incidents” to contact the DA’s office.
