Nathan Chasing Horse Again Asks Nevada's Top Judge to Drop Charges

The Nevada Supreme Court will hear another appeal from Nathan Chase as his attorneys continue to try to have multiple sexual harassment claims against him dismissed.

A majority of the state Supreme Court's jurists agreed to hear the appeal on March 22.

Supporters include Judges Elissa Cadish, Lidia Stiglich, Douglas Herndon and Linda Bell. Three judges, Kristina Pickering, Patricia Lee and Ron Parraguirre, voted to deny the legal motion.

The petition is the third filed by Chai Ma’s legal team.

Previous appeal dismissed

An earlier appeal by Horse Chasers was dismissed by two of the three Supreme Court judges. Patricia Lee and Ron D. Parraguirre ruled against the horse-chasing company, while Douglas Herndon opposed the appeal. Another appeal was also dismissed by a judge.

Chasing Horse is represented by attorneys including Clark County Public Defender Kristy Holston.

She argued that women who reported inappropriate behavior actually consented to sex. Holden also criticized prosecutors for giving grand jury members a single definition of "grooming" and for providing jurors with different information, Las Vegas television station KLAS reported.

Chasing Horse is currently in jail facing 18 charges in Clark County. He was charged with six counts of sexual assault, 10 counts of sexual assault of a minor, kidnapping of a minor and indecent assault. Drug quantities were removed.

Among the victims are teenagers

The charges stem from incidents that occurred between 2014 and 2020. Victims included Native American youth and women.

One of the victims, Ren Leone, a former Corena horse chaser, claims he began abusing her when she was 14 years old. Like several other victims, Leone said the horse-chasing organization groomed them to become future wives.

He also pledged some of them to donate healing powers, including to Leone's mother, who has cancer.

He met his victims while serving as leader and "witch doctor" of the so-called "Circle" cult.

Chasing Horse has been held at the Clark County Detention Center since his arrest in January 2023 at his North Las Vegas residence. He shared the house with his many wives.

His bail was set at $300,000. He pleaded not guilty to the charges in Clark County Court.

Chasing Horse faces similar charges or pending charges in federal court in Nevada, Montana and Canada.

He became famous for starring in the movie "Dances with Wolves". Chasing Horse played the role of "Smile a Lot" in the 1990 Kevin Costner film.
