Denver Skey will appear in Nelson court again on August 9.

Mount Sentinel student refused bail

Denver Tyler Skey will appear in Nelson court again on August 9.

Eighteen-year-old Denver Tyler Skey was refused bail in Nelson court on Tuesday and will remain in custody.

He is charged with two counts of uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm, stemming from the incident that led to the cancellation of the Mount Sentinel graduation ceremony in June.

On June 29, Judge Philip Seagram ordered that Skey be assessed to determine whether he should be exempt from criminal responsibility due to a mental disability. He also ordered that Skey remain in custody until the assessment is complete.

The contents of that assessment and the proceedings at this week’s bail hearing are covered by a court-ordered publication ban.

Skey will appear in Nelson court again on August 9.
