Initial criminal court appearances were at 9 a.m. Thursday at the Jackson County Jail for those still incarcerated.
Among the accused brought before the judge was Ricky Wayne Jones, 19, of Altus.
Jones is being held on a charge of first degree rape. He was arrested Oct. 4 by officers at the Altus Police Department after an arrest warrant with a finding of probable cause was issued. Jones was instructed not to make contact with the alleged victim and is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing Nov. 10. At that time it will be the responsibility of the State of Oklahoma to introduce probable cause that a crime was committed and probable cause that the alleged crime was committed by the defendant.
Also making initial appearances Thursday were:
* Aidan Alexander Cobos, 24, of Altus, who was arrested on possession of a Schedule III, IV, or V controlled substance, marijuana, and was released on his own recognizance or OR to seek treatment. An OR bond is set without a bail amount with conditional obligations set by the court. The defendant agrees to appear before a judge at a later date and use the time leading up to the court date to seek rehabilitation classes or follow other conditions set by the judge.
* Kearstyn Kay Lucille Fick, 25, of Altus, who was arrested on a charge of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. Fick is slated for a next court appearance Nov. 15 and bond was set at $20,000.
* Santos Ray Gonzales, 35, of Cheyenne, who was arrested on a charge of failing to pay taxes due to the state. Gonzales pleaded guilty to the charge and waived his right to a jury trial.
First appearances are typically held 9 a.m. Thursdays at the Jackson County Jail, 600 S. Main St. in Altus.
