LAS VEGAS (KSNV – Bail was set this morning for the former Nevada Assemblyman recently freed from his California incarceration.

Bail was set at Steven Brooks, 42, on a charge of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person. Brooks also has a $50,000 bail for four other charges, including domestic battery; providing a false state of obstruct a public officer; resisting a public officer with a firearm.

His next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 18, with a preliminary hearing set for Aug. 21.

Brooks’ troubles began Jan. 19, 2013, when he was accused of making threats against Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick. A mental health evaluation followed, and Brooks was released from custody.

His attorney maintained it was all a misunderstanding, but a few weeks later Brooks had another run-in with police, this time a domestic dispute with his wife.

He was removed from office March 28, 2013, and hours later was arrested in Victorville, Calif., over a confrontation with police.

He pleaded guilty in March to evading police and resisting arrest in San Bernardino County. He was sentenced July 25, with the judge ruling that with time served and good behavior, Brooks had completed his sentence.
