Manchester CrimeWatch: Stalking charge prompts bail revocation motion
July 01. 2014 10:15PM
MANCHESTER — A bail revocation hearing is scheduled Wednesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division for Jacob Valley, 19, of 4 Bethel Court. Valley was charged with stalking for being in a vehicle with a woman he’s barred from contacting by bail conditions on an assault charge that is scheduled for trial July 31.
Trial was also set for July 31 on the new stalking charge.
Debra Lavoie, 51, of 178 Lowell St., had been scheduled to enter a plea Tuesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to a charge of driving after suspension.
But that was rescheduled after two other charges were brought forward, one of them a felony charge of unlawful gambling on which she had been scheduled for arraignment later this month.
That charge alleges Lavoie, also known as Thibault, between March 27 and May 23 paid cash to patrons for points accumulated on video poker machines at Club Lafayette, 387 Canal St.
A misdemeanor simple assault charge alleges she assaulted a woman in the parking lot of 921 Union St., Nov. 26, 2013.
Bail was continued at $2,000 cash/surety and $2,000 personal recognizance, with a probable cause hearing on the felony and a status hearing on the misdemeanors July 30.
Because Lavoie could enter no plea to the felony charge in Circuit Court, the probable cause hearing was set so a judge can determine whether there is sufficient evidence to send the charge to the Hillsborough County North Grand Jury for possible indictment.
Friends are off limits
Instead of having a bail revocation hearing Tuesday, Eddy Polanco, 19, of 467 Maple St., pleaded guilty in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to charges of resisting arrest and operating after suspension, scheduled for trial July 21.
When Polanco was arrested on a warrant for criminal threatening, on which he was arraigned Monday, police prosecutors filed a motion to revoke Polanco’s bail on the earlier charges and have him held until trial on those charges.
The plea agreement called for Polanco to serve off the fine and penalty amount of $310 on the operating after suspension charge, which is seven days at $50 a day. On the resisting arrest plea, Polanco was sentenced to 90 days in jail, with all but time served deferred for six months. If he has complied with all conditions of the agreement when he returns to Circuit Court Jan. 7, 2015, the sentence will be suspended for 18 months.
Bail was set at $3,000 cash/surety on the criminal threatening charge that accuses him of threatening to assault and shoot a person at 455 Maple St.
Conditions of Polanco’s bail bar contact with the victim and another named person and bar Polanco from going within 100 yards of both 455 and 467 Maple St.
Another condition of Polanco’s bail bars any contact and/or association with or being found in the company of: David, Damien and Darius Weekly, Adrien Stillwell, William Trice and/or Juan Rueda.
Trial on the criminal threatening charge was set for Aug. 13.
A police prosecutor in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division Tuesday told a judge that McKeea Fields did not see a bail commissioner after her arrest on simple assault charges because she was highly intoxicated.
Fields, 31, of 82 Electric St., pleaded innocent to the assault charges that allege she bit her boyfriend on the right arm and struck him. Judge William Lyons set bail at $1,000 cash/surety, with conditions barring contact with the alleged victim and barring Fields from his residence.Trial was set for July 29.
