COEUR d’ALENE — One at a time, three Spokane teens charged in a series of downtown Coeur d’Alene robberies funneled into Coeur d’Alene’s First District Court this week to face felony charges of conspiracy, robbery and theft.
On Wednesday, 16-year-old Kaden Andrew Fisher-Graham, after learning the charges against him carry a maximum penalty of life behind bars, told Senior Judge Robert Burton that he was a little nervous and somewhat overwhelmed at the district court proceedings.
Fisher-Graham’s charges include criminal conspiracy, grand theft and two counts of robbery.
His attorney, Jed Nixon, was granted a continuance to review indictment materials before having Fisher-Graham enter a plea.
Fisher-Graham lost his right, size 9, Nike athletic shoe June 26, police said, while running from a crime scene on Sherman Avenue.
The shoe, a black AF 1, was picked up later by police who said it matched a shoe found in the car that police stopped as it headed west on I-90 following the downtown Coeur d’Alene robberies.
Fisher-Graham was in the dark colored Honda with co-defendants Camron Thomas Pearson, 18, and 16-year-old Anthony Duran Burden Jr., stopped by patrol officers around 6 p.m. near Atlas Road.
Footage on a McEuen Field surveillance cameras show Anthony and Camron punching and knocking out a man, and punching and knocking to the ground a woman in the McEuen parking garage, stealing their belongings and jumping into the dark-colored Honda that sped away, police said.
Witnesses who saw the incident sent the license plate number to police.
The males are also accused of stealing a cell phone, credit cards and billfold from a dinner table in the outside seating area of the Unchained Tap House and fleeing with the items.
Burden did not enter a plea at his Wednesday hearing. District Judge John Mitchell entered not guilty pleas for him.
Pearson, who is still in custody, and who appeared Wednesday in shackles and an orange jumpsuit, did not enter a plea either. Instead, his arraignment was postponed until he has a mental health evaluation.
Two others, Jasmyn M. Braley-Couture, 17, and June T. Stanley, 17, who were in the dark-colored Honda on June 26, were charged by police with accessory to robbery and on misdemeanor drug charges.
The girls told police they were not involved in the robberies and did not know they had occurred.
Stanley, however told police in an interview that she wasn’t surprised at the charges against the three males because they had done “worser (sp) shit than this,” according to a police report.
