Mike Arnold and his team of attorneys at Arnold Law have been retained by Stephen Nichols to represent him against false accusations of murder in the hiking fall death of Rhonda Casto. The couple had one daughter.
The death of Rhonda Casto (commonly misspelled “Ronda Castro”) occurred on March 16, 2009. The Hood River District Attorney and Hood River Sheriff’s Office waited five years before filing charges against Steve Nichols and waited another year to notify him of the murder charge so that he could begin his investigation.
His attorney, Michael Arnold, had this to say about the 6 year delay: “This delay is greatly prejudicing him in proving his innocence. Memories fade and evidence disappears. That is why we have established this website: To do the truth seeking that needs to be done.”
