MASON CITY – On Friday, June 15th, 21-year-old Kenneth Donjuan Alfonzo May was supposed to appear at the Cerro Cordo County Court House for court at 3pm on a Class C felony charge of intimidation with a dangerous weapon with intent to injure or provoke fear and an aggravated misdemeanor count of carrying weapons. The charges stem from a shooting incident in the parking lot of Northside Liquor in which Kenneth allegedly shot at and hit an occupied vehicle during a dispute on June 6th.
According to court records instead of appearing to the court preceding that had been scheduled for June 15th when he posted a $10,000 bond following his arrest, May instead called the clerk of court “asking for a continuance”. No new court date has been entered according to court records online and Kenneth May remains on the streets.
Kenneth May, then listed as a Detroit resident, was also convicted in a Mason City shooting that occurred on March 9th 2009. In that incident he was originally charged with a Class C felony count of intimidation dangerous weapon, a Class C felony count of willful injury and an aggravated misdemeanor count carrying weapons after shooting then 23-year-old Geno Ward in the hand during an altercation at 1019 N. Rhode Island Ave.
Facing the possibility of 22 years in prison, Kenneth May entered a voluntary plea of guilty to the misdemeanor charge and both felony charges were dismissed by Judge James Drew. On December 14th, 2009 he was sentenced to serve two years in prison, but was released by the Iowa Department of Corrections on July 12th, 2009 after serving only 8 months in prison for the shooting another man.
Court records also show Kenneth May is awaiting a trial scheduled for July 11th in Winnebago County on a serious misdemeanor count of possession of a controlled substance charge originating from a criminal complaint by the Iowa State Patrol for an incident on March 18th.
Court records also show Kenneth May is awaiting a trial scheduled for July 24th in Cerro Gordo County on a serious misdemeanor count of domestic abuse assault causing bodily injury, and a serious misdemeanor count of assault causing bodily injury following an April 29th incident in Mason City.
SUBJECT IS INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY
