A man facing vehicular homicide charges has denied an accusation that he was driving recently despite having a revoked license.
Dan Robbins, 31, is facing charges of manslaughter, vehicular homicide and reckless driving in relation to a June 10 accident near Kremmling that claimed the life of his passenger, 22-year-old Jeffery Harris of Clark. On Wednesday, Robbins appeared in Routt County Court to face an allegation that he was driving a motorcycle after having his driving privileges revoked because of the ongoing homicide case.
Robbins' attorney, Charles Feld-mann, said a friend of the Harris family told police that he saw Robbins driving the motorcycle July 6 in Steamboat Springs.
Robbins pleaded not guilty to violating bond conditions, and his case was set for trial at 8:30 a.m. Sept. 27 in District Court.
Feldmann said he did not think the trial would take longer than one day because the District Attorney's Office has only one witness to testify in the case.
"This won't be very complicated, because my client wasn't even in the county that day," Feldmann said.
Along with his September court date in Routt County, Robbins is scheduled to appear Aug. 19 in Grand County Court on the charges stemming from the fatal car accident.
