BARSTOW, Calif. (KSNV MyNews3) — Former Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks will return to a southern California courtroom May 7 after his court-appointed lawyer requested the time to review the evidence.

Brooks had faced an evidence hearing Tuesday afternoon in San Bernardino County Superior Court to determine whether he'll go to trial on charges including resisting an officer, felony evading and assault on a police animal.

Brooks pleaded not guilty a week ago. He could face more than five years in prison if he's convicted.

The March 28 arrest on Interstate 15 near Victorville was Brooks' third this year.

It came just hours after the North Las Vegas Democrat became the first Nevada lawmaker ever ousted from the Legislature.
