Gloucester District Court: City man gets continance on license charge

Gloucester District Court

A 36-year-old Gloucester man admitted to sufficient facts on a charge of driving after a license suspension, but Judge Joseph Jennings continued the case without a finding until October.

Bryan W. Nikola of Forrest Street was placed instead on administrative supervision until then and ordered to pay a $50 assessment.

Police who had received a report of Nikola driving erratically, had stopped Nikola as he turned onto Smith Street “abruptly” and without using a turn signal in February, according to a police report. The judge also found Nikola not responsible for failing to use a turn signal.

Jennings dismissed number of cases in Gloucester District Court:

A charge of unlicensed driving against Pablo Ferreira, 20, of Essex Street will be dismissed if he pays court costs of $200.

An unlicensed driving charge against 22-year-old Lexington Avenue resident Alyssa N. Bennet will be dismissed if she pays court costs of $100.

Samuel O’Gorman, 46, of North Kilby Street, has the option to pay court costs of $100 or complete 10 hours of community service for a charge of unlicensed driving to be dismissed.

An unlicensed driving charge against James D. Wonson, a 49-year-old Trask Street man, will be dismissed if he pays $100 in court costs. Wonson was found not responsible for a lights violation too.

A charge of striped bass fishing violations against a 37-year-old Middleton man, Phong T. Nguyen, will be dismissed if he pays court costs of $100 on the two counts of the charge.

Steven Ouellet of Essex, a 28-year-old Belcher Street man, will see a charge of driving after a license suspension dismissed if he pays court costs of $200.

A charge of breaking a municipal ordinance and bylaw violation against 27-year-old James M. Odum of Perkins Street will be dismissed if he pays court costs of $50.

Steffani L. Ledford, 38, of Kitefield Road in Rockport saw a charge of larceny over $250 against her dismissed upon failure to prosecute.

Charges of assault and battery against James Britton, a Beverly man who court documents list as homeless, were dismissed upon failure to prosecute, with marital privilege asserted in Gloucester District Court.
