District Court, Kandiyohi County

- Tyler Dean Ryks, 24, of New London made a first appearance Wednesday in Eighth District Court on a felony drug charge for selling synthetic marijuana.

Judge Jennifer Fischer set unconditional bail at $20,000 and conditional release at $5,000, with terms that include remaining law-abiding and submitting to random drug testing. The judge also agreed to a request for Ryks to be represented by a public defender. His next appearance in court is scheduled for July 14.

A confidential reliable informant tipped off local authorities this past April that synthetic cannabinoid, or marijuana, allegedly could be purchased from Ryks. Under the direction of the CEE-VI Drug Task Force, the informant was sent in to make a buy, using $45 of drug task force money. The transaction, which was conducted under surveillance, netted a small container of a leafy green substance that field-tested positive for synthetic cannabinoid.

- A Willmar man faces multiple charges after being arrested following a domestic disturbance at his home Monday night.

Jacobo Ajualip Jimon, 25, made a first appearance Wednesday in Eighth District Court on a felony charge of domestic assault by strangulation and misdemeanor charges of domestic assault and fifth-degree assault.

 He was arrested after his girlfriend fled their home and reported the assault to Willmar Police.

Court documents said Jimon allegedly became jealous after seeing his girlfriend talking to another man at a soccer game Monday evening. In an attack that night at their home, reportedly witnessed by the couple’s two young children, he hit and kicked her and tried to strangle her.

Judge Jennifer Fischer set unconditional bail at $15,000 and conditional bail at $1,500. The judge also issued a domestic abuse no-contact order requiring Jimon to stay away from the victim’s home. The order will remain in effect through the disposition of the case. Violations could result in additional criminal charges.

Jimon’s request to be represented by a public defender was granted. His next court appearance is July 14.

- A charge of third-degree criminal sexual conduct has been leveled against a Willmar man whose alleged victim was a vulnerable adult living in a home for individuals with developmental disabilities.

Travis Duane Mithun, 21, made a first appearance Wednesday in Eighth District Court. His next scheduled court date is July 14.

The incident came to the attention of authorities in late May, when a Willmar Police Department detective was asked to investigate allegations of a sexual assault against the victim, an adult male identified only by his initials, who is a resident of a Willmar group home.

According to court documents, Mithun and the victim reportedly had known each other since 2011. The court complaint said Mithun initially denied the assault and claimed it was accidental, then later allegedly admitted it was intentional.
