Marine posts $75,000 bond
• Marine Corps Sgt. Jonathan Douglas Roy, 23, of Lochbuie, who is accused of having a sexual relationship with an underage girl, posted bond Thursday, three hours after a Mesa County Court judge set it at $75,000.
Roy was booked into Mesa County Jail on Wednesday on a Mesa County Sheriff’s Department warrant for sexual assault on a child as a pattern of abuse. Authorities allege he traveled to Grand Junction-area hotels on several occasions to meet a 14-year-old local girl for sex. Roy is an Iraq war veteran who was awarded several decorations, including the Marine Corps’ Good Conduct Medal.
A pair of men, both Marine Corps representatives, were in court Thursday on Roy’s behalf. Both declined to speak to a Daily Sentinel reporter.
According to the Grand Junction Police Department:
• Shannon Ashawn Palmer, 29, 426 Smallwood Drive, was arrested at St. Mary’s Hospital on Wednesday on suspicion of two counts of second-degree assault on a peace officer, as well as for a fugitive warrant.
