A pretrial conference has been continued in the case of a Leavenworth man accused of firing shots at a deputy during a pursuit.

A pretrial conference has been continued in the case of a Leavenworth man accused of firing shots at a deputy during a pursuit.

Anthony J. Robertson, 33, appeared Friday in Leavenworth County District Court for what was scheduled as a pretrial conference. But the hearing was continued until Nov. 30.

Robertson is charged with aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer, criminal discharge of a firearm at an occupied vehicle, criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer and interference with a law enforcement officer.

The crimes are alleged to have occurred July 6.

Robertson is accused of leading deputies from the Leavenworth County Sheriff’s Office on a chase that began in the area of 207th Street and Kansas 92 Highway.

During the pursuit, Robertson allegedly fired shots at a vehicle driven by Cpl. Sarah Flaherty of the Sheriff’s Office.

Following the vehicle pursuit, Robertson and his passenger, Shauntel M. Cornelius, allegedly fled on foot. They were apprehended the following day.

Robertson's attorney, Clinton Lee, said the defense could move forward Friday with the pretrial conference. But Lee said it was his understanding that the prosecution is pursuing additional discovery evidence that may result in a motion for the endorsement of additional witnesses.

Lee said the defense did not object to a continuance.

Robertson also is facing burglary and theft charges in a separate case for allegedly breaking into the Burger King in Lansing last year.

He also has been accused of violating probation in a case stemming from a 2016 drug charge.

He remains in custody at the Leavenworth County Jail.

Cornelius, 29, also faces charges for the July 6 incident. She faces felony charges of aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and interference with law enforcement as well as misdemeanor charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and criminal littering.
