MAYVILLE – A Ripley man accused of kidnapping was placed back into Chautauqua County Jail Friday morning.
Chautauqua County District Attorney Jason Schmidt announced that Judge David W. Foley granted a motion from the prosecutor asking for bail to be reset or revoked for 22-year-old Isiah Fuentes who is set to stand trial for kidnapping next month.
Schmidt says that bail was reset at $2.5 million cash or $5 million real property. He adds that Fuentes faces a list of charges stemming from multiple incidents ranging from July 2020 through July 6 of this year.
Fuentes was charged in two separate incidents this month involving a weapon.
The Ripley man was originally indicted in September 2020 on two counts of felony first-degree kidnapping, felony first-degree assault, two counts of felony second-degree assault, felony second-degree strangulation, two counts of felony first-degree coercion, and one count of second-degree menacing.
Some of those charges, however, were dismissed prior to trial in the kidnapping case.
Assistant Public Defender James Williams is listed as Fuentes’ lawyer.
