Judge refuses to lower bail for Nibley man accused of stalking

Dennis K. Seamons, 28, charged with six counts of stalking and one count of aggravated assault, all third-degree felonies. He's also charged with four misdemeanors, including disorderly conduct and violating a protective order.

LOGAN — A judge has refused to lower bail for a 28-year-old Nibley man accused of stalking, aggravated assault and other charges.

Dennis K. Seamons appeared in 1st District Court Tuesday morning. He’s charged with six counts of stalking and one count of aggravated assault, all third-degree felonies. He’s also charged with four misdemeanors, including disorderly conduct and violating a protective order.

State attorney Barbara Lachmar told the court that Seamons has repeatedly been trying to contact the victim in this case, threatening her and violating a stalking injunction against him. She also noted that he has four cases pending and had been hiding from law enforcement, prior to his arrest last week.

Judge Brian Cannell agreed with the state and left bail at $20,000.

Seamons will appear again in court March 25 for a preliminary hearing. At that time, a judge will decide if prosecutors have sufficient evidence to bind him over for trial.
