Las Vegas arrest:
A former aide to Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman was indicted Wednesday on sex assault, arson, stalking and kidnapping charges.
The indictment was unsealed Wednesday against William L. Cassidy, who resigned from his mayoral aide position in 2001 following an arrest on a domestic violence charge.
Cassidy was charged with raping his wife, Xiao Ping, on Feb. 19.
Within two days of that attack, authorities say, the woman’s business was the scene of a fire that caused about $100,000 damage. Authorities subsequently named Cassidy a suspect in the blaze at Silk Road Accu Pressure/Pan Pacific Management Inc.
In addition, the indictment charges Cassidy with stalking and beating his wife. A domestic violence charge lodged against Cassidy is listed as a third offense in court documents.
“There has been an escalating level of violence for several years,” Clark County prosecutor Conrad Claus said.
In asking District Judge Gene Porter to set bail at $500,000, Claus said Cassidy has claimed to have connections to the Central Intelligence Agency. Claus labeled Cassidy a potential flight risk, saying he has multiple international connections.
“He’s been talking about ending his own life,” Klaus said, adding that “we may have (further) injury or death to the victim” if Cassidy was released.
Porter set bail at $500,000 cash only for Cassidy, who already was in custody at the Clark County Detention Center in the matter.
