SNOWFLAKE — On Oct. 19, Presiding Navajo County Judge Dale P. Nielson sent the latest 15 count sex crime-related indictment against longtime Snowflake Chiropractor Wesley Bowman, 74, back to a grand jury, finding that the Navajo County Attorney’s Office “failed to adequately advise the grand jury of (certain) details,” which failure “hindered the grand jury’s ability to make an uninfluenced decision,” the judge ruled.

This was the second time Bowman had asked the court to send charges against him back to the grand jury because of alleged irregularities in how the prosecutor conducted the proceedings and how the detective sergeant from the Navajo County Sheriff’s Office handled her testimony.
