MASON CITY -A Ventura man already in jail had more charges added Wednesday.
Daniel Martez Judon III, 34, whom authorities list as a Ventura resident, is currently being held in the Cerro Gordo County Jail on a serious domestic assault charge, described as “an aggravated misdemeanor, if the domestic abuse assault is committed with the intent to inflict a serious injury upon another, or if the person uses or displays a dangerous weapon in connection with the assault.”
Judon was arrested on August 23rd, 2012 by Mason City police on the domestic assault charge and has plead not guilty. A motion for a bond reduction (set at $1000 previously) by Judon’s attorney Susan Flander was denied by Judge James Drew. He will go to trial on November 14th.
