WOODLAND, CA – Yolo County Superior Court Judge Tom Dyer Friday scheduled two dates the first week of November for those individuals in different cases – one is held on $25,000 bail each, while one of them is held on $50,000 bail.
In one of the first cases of the day, Brandon Clark appeared in court because of an alleged violation of his Community Supervision Post Release. The Yolo County Probation Department petitioned the court because of allegations that Clark allowed his GPS monitor to die and not reporting to probation officers.
The prosecution explained to Judge Dyer that Clark poses a risk if he refuses to follow the guidelines of his community supervision post release, and that he should be held without bail.
The prosecution stated, “Mr. Carson is back in custody because he refused to wear GPS. When he bailed, they put a GPS on him and then he took it off. At this point, the people don’t believe that bail is sufficient to keep Mr. Clark in compliance with the conditions pending resolution of this matter.”
The Yolo County Deputy Public Defender Dave Muller represented the defendant and pleaded to the judge to not go above and beyond the scheduled bail amount of $25,000.
Judge Dyer ordered a new court date for admit or deny for Nov. 2 and ordered to exonerate the previous bail bond of $25,000 and set a new bail in the amount of $50,000, not the no bail the prosecution asked for but more than the current $25,000.
In another case, Wesley Dunn appeared in court Friday for failure to appear at a preliminary hearing in August of this year.
The judge set the preliminary hearing date for Nov. 5 while bail is set at $25,000.
