District Court

Kandiyohi County

* Todd Jerome Hendricks, 44, of Osakis, made his first appearance Monday on two felony charges of violating a court order for protection.

Unconditional bail was set at $10,000. His next appearance is Oct. 1.

According to the complaint, an order for protection prohibiting Hendricks from contact with a woman and three children was issued in March by a district judge in a Kandiyohi County family court file. The order was served on Hendricks and was to be in effect for one year. Hendricks violated the order by having contact with those named in the order twice in March and April and was convicted on those charges in April.

On Aug. 1, the woman reported to Atwater police that she had discovered more than 40 Facebook messages from Hendricks to one of the children. The messages were sent between May 28 and July 31. She also reported that one of the children received a text message from Hendricks on July 25. The order prohibited Hendricks from having contact with the children unless they initiate the contact.
