There may be a resolution coming for the matter of the man accused of the stabbing death of another man at Red Hawk Casino.

Attorney Clifford Safranski, representing Estephen Juarez, told Judge Douglas C. Phimister that an offer from the District Attorney’s Office had been made and that a possible resolution could be at hand.

A hearing was made for May 10 at 8:30 a.m. in Department 1 to determine further hearing dates in the case and whether Juarez would be accepting the offer.

Juarez, 33, was arrested in connection with the death of Gene Mcarn, 19, of Rescue, who died of stab wounds on Nov. 21, 2012, after an alleged encounter with Juarez at Red Hawk Casino in Shingle Springs. Juarez is being held in the county jail on two counts of violation of probation and one count of murder with a $70,000 bail hold.

    Hopefully his deal is the death penalty! But it will be likely we pay for this turd for as long as he is alive, hopefully NOT LONG!

    Mountain Man, it wouldn't be much of a plea deal if the government offer was the death penalty. I think we can expect something less. How about 25 to life and the government won't go for the death penalty.

    Sarcasm, James I know we will be paying for this turds existence for some time, that is unless he gets what he deserves inside...

    Not a week goes by in the "crime log" without some "Meth freaks" being arrested for possession or paraphernalia violations, etc. at the Casino. I'm with Mountain Man and Col. James. Let the "turd" rot inside but I would add let the Casino pay for the costs of "life support" for the puke. They may have the "loosest slots" but it seems to me they also have the "loosest oversight" of activities on their property. Sure hope they are paying us sufficiently for our law enforcement who has to continually visit the place.

    Thank you for everyone's support in the community for helping us say what we can't say because no one there is listening. Gene is our son and we miss him deeply. No offer they give him will ever be enough to heal our family's wounds...however he will be held accountable no matter what he is sentenced to. Everyone in the community who knew our son, THANK YOU for remembering him and loving him. Just remember our son and not the monster that murdered him, and just think of how many times this monster is in the paper but they refuse to put our sons picture to remember him instead.
