City attorney closes complaint against judge

The Las Vegas city attorney has decided not to prosecute a misdemeanor battery complaint filed in May against a District Court judge.

The complaint was the result of an argument between Judge Stefany Miley and Rhonda Gold-Charbonneau on May 19 at a soccer field at Buffalo Drive and Summerlin Parkway, according to a Las Vegas police incident report. Gold-Charbonneau accused Miley of a body bump.

City Attorney Brad Jerbic said in a statement, "After review, the case has been denied for prosecution based on inability to prove the charge beyond a reasonable doubt."

Gold-Charbonneau filed the complaint on May 20.

According to the police report, Gold-Charbonneau said that Miley approached her and accused her of touching her children and talking about their family.

An argument ensued between the two women. At one point, a soccer coach unsuccessfully tried to get them to stop arguing, the incident report said.

Gold-Charbonneau alleged Miley then said, "If you ever touch my boys again," but didn’t finish her sentence, according to the report.

Gold-Charbonneau then contended that Miley, with a clenched fist, bumped her body into Gold-Charbonneau’s, the report said.

Gold-Charbonneau asked Miley whether she wanted to fight, according to the report. "Suspect yelled ‘Shut up’ and she (victim) replied ‘You shut up.’" The incident ended with Miley walking away, according to the report.

Police were not called to the scene, no one was injured, and Miley was never charged.

Miley did not return a phone call Tuesday requesting comment. Attempts to contact Gold-Charbonneau were unsuccessful.
