JADE DESCHAMPS

Jade Deschamps, 24, is accused of criminal extortion and harassment, among other charges, and received a $10,000 cash-only bond from the Mesa County Court on Tuesday.

Deschamps is accused of repeatedly calling and attempting to communicate with an ex-girlfriend, according to his arrest affidavit.

The defense argued for a personal recognizance bond, arguing there was no physical violence alleged and that the alleged harassment was over the phone and over electronic devices.

"The court is quite familiar with Mr. Deschamps, unfortunately for him," Judge Craig Henderson said, saying he was recently placed on probation by the court. "A PR bond is absolutely inappropriate given this case."

■ Matthew Cook, 33, is accused of felony menacing and received a $5,000 cash-only bond on Tuesday, despite his defense requesting a PR bond.

Cook was accused of shoplifting at a store at Mesa Mall on Saturday and allegedly threatened the loss prevention officer who approached him, according to his arrest affidavit.

■ John Taylor, 30, is accused of second-degree assault, domestic violence and child abuse and received a $10,000 cash-only bond from Mesa County Court on Tuesday.

Judge Henderson said at his arraignment that the allegations were very serious, saying that any kind of PR bond was inappropriate.

■ Irvin Salcido, 46, is accused of drug possession and received a $5,000 personal-recognizance bond on Tuesday.

Salcido was contacted by police on Friday and suspected methamphetamine was found in his vehicle, according to an arrest affidavit.

■ Mikie Mitchell, 44, is accused of theft, among other charges, and received a $5,000 PR bond on Tuesday.

Mitchell is accused of stealing a man's credit card and using it for several purchases in town, according to an arrest affidavit.

■ Quincy Rouson, 40, is accused of attempting to influence a public servant, among other charges, and received a $10,000 cash-only bond on Tuesday.

Judge Henderson said in referencing his missed court dates and felony history that anything less than a cash-only bond was considered inappropriate by the court.
