A Hamilton County judge says Nesmith is a Bronx native and has an extensive criminal history in New York.

During Nesmith’s arraignment, the judge said the defendant had been released from prison after serving time for an attempted murder charge, including robbery, assault, and other pending out-of-state charges.

Nesmith will be back in court later this month and is being held on a $20,000 bond, according to court documents.
