State Rep’s wife pleads not guilty to reckless endangerment
On May 4, Pinedale optometrist Dr. Lisa Glenn, 37, of Daniel entered a not guilty plea to reckless endangerment after being charged April 30 following an incident where the vehicle she was driving ran over her husband, State Rep. Monte Olsen.
Pretrial has been set for Aug. 16 at 8:30 a.m. and will be conducted via telephone. A jury trial has been scheduled for Oct. 2 at 9 a.m. with Third Judicial District Judge Dan Forgey presiding over the case.
According to a release signed by Sublette County Undersheriff Jim Whinery, an officer responded to a domestic situation at a residence on Highway 354 in Daniel at about 11 p.m. on April 28.
Upon arrival, deputies and emergency response members assisted Olsen, who had apparently been struck by a motor vehicle driven by his wife, according to court documents.
Dispatch received a report of “a man that was run over with a vehicle,” and when the deputy arrived, he found Olsen trapped beneath a maroon Chevy Suburban, according to court documents.
EMS tended to the victim while the deputy spoke with Glenn, who is the owner and driver of the Suburban in the incident, according to court documents. Glenn said she and her husband had a verbal altercation, and she was attempting to leave the residence when she ran over her husband.
According to court documents, the deputy noted a continuous set of tire tracks in the gravel and grass, matching the tires “peeling out.” The tracks led to the vehicle that was on top of Olsen.
Olsen was flown to Eastern Idaho Medical Center for treatment, where he was reportedly in critical condition.
According to Larura Fabrick, nursing supervisor at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center (EIRMC), Olsen was upgraded to fair condition during the middle of last week, but remains in the Intensive Care Unit at EIRMC as of Monday.
Olsen was sworn into office for House District 22 of the Wyoming State Legislature in 2003 and was re-elected to the post in 2006.
