EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. - A man suspected of menacing in El Paso County was granted a bond reduction for three charges on Wednesday.
Daniel Nations was in El Paso County court at 8:30 a.m. for the official filing of a trespassing charge that was placed against him on October 10.
Nations' lawyers also requested that his bonds for felony menacing, reckless endangerment and a misdemeanor charge of assault be reduced.
They argued that Nations served in the military for over four years and was deployed to Kuwait.
The judge ruled in favor for the following reductions:
Misdemeanor Assault Bond: Was $2,000 and reduced to $800.
Felony Menacing Bond: Was $15,000 and reduced to $5,000.
Felony Reckless Endangerment Bond: Was $3,000 and reduced to $1,000.
Our reporter in the courtroom also learned that Nations' children have been placed in DHS custody.
His children were in the back of the vehicle when Nations was arrested in Woodland Park for a weapons charge at the end of September.
Their mother, Kaitlyn, was also in the vehicle. She was denied custody because she is currently living in a homeless shelter.
Nations' preliminary hearing has been set for November 9 at 11 a.m.
