Chicago man forfeits $12,000 cash bond
A Chicago man will lose a $12,000 cash bond after he violated bail conditions from Trempealeau County by being charged with 23 counts of armed robbery, battery, kidnapping and unlawful use of a gun in Illinois.
Dajuan Cortez Thomas, 34, was arrested March 24 after Trempealeau County sheriff’s deputies stopped him for allegedly speeding on Interstate 94. He was charged with felony possession of cocaine with intent to sell and released on $20,000 cash bond, $8,000 of which was previously returned, according to court records.
A hearing is scheduled for Oct. 1 on Thomas’s attorney’s arguments that the evidence against Thomas was not properly obtained
As a condition of his release, Thomas was forbidden from committing another crime. The Cook County district attorney contacted the Trempealeau County district attorney’s office last week to report that Thomas was charged in a June 9 incident with armed robbery, unlawful use of a gun and aggravated intimidation, kidnapping and battery. He is being held in Cook County jail, court records say.
