SHARE NOW

The Colona man charged for displaying a gun at the security checkpoint in the Henry County Courthouse will remain detained until trial.  James Demink waived his Preliminary Hearing on January 2, 2024, and has a Jury Pre-Trial scheduled for January 18, 2024, at 9 AM.  Mr. Demink had a detention hearing on December 28, 2023, and the court approved the State’s Petition for Pretrial Detention because less restrictive restrictions would not guarantee the defendant would appear in court and not flee the jurisdiction.  James Demink is charged with Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon (Class 4 Felony).  Read more here.

James Riske was not brought over from jail for his rescheduled Preliminary Hearing on January 2, 2024, so the Preliminary Hearing was continued to January 16, 2024, at 1 PM.  James Riske is charged with Aggravated Battery/Victim 60+ (Class 3 Felony) and Domestic Battery/Physical Contact (Class A Misdemeanor).  Read more here.
