RENO — On Wednesday, Edward Weldon Evans Jr., a 46-year-old target of the Northern Nevada Repeat Offender Program, was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole in the Nevada State Prison by Judge Connie Steinheimer. 

Evans was adjudicated as a habitual criminal by the judge after being presented with eight prior certified, non-drug-related felony convictions by Assistant District Attorney Kelly Kossow. Evans’ criminal history spans from 1985 and he has 13 prior felony convictions.

Evans’ sentencing stems from a jury conviction in January for resisting a public officer with the use of a deadly weapon, hit and run with injury, aiding and abetting burglary/obtaining money under false pretenses and conspiracy to commit burglary/obtaining money under false pretenses. For the first three counts he received life with the possibility of parole. For the fourth count Evans received 12 months. All of the counts were to run concurrently and he was granted 713 days credit for time served in the Washoe County Jail.   

The Northern Nevada Repeat Offender Program is a regional unit comprised of detectives from the Reno and Sparks police departments.
