Battery results in multiple felony countsJuly 25, 2014
From local sources
JASPER — Christopher L. May, 30, made an initial court appearance in Dubois Circuit Court on Wednesday to answer to multiple felony counts stemming from a Saturday incident in Jasper.
Court documents state the Jasper Police Department was dispatched to a battery at 1:51 a.m. Saturday in which a pregnant woman was, among other things, kicked in the stomach during a physical altercation.
The female victim was transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital and it was ultimately determined there was no risk to the pregnancy, according to court documents.
May was not present but a warrant was issued charging him with Level 5 felony counts of battery with bodily injury to a pregnant woman and criminal confinement, plus Level 6 felony counts of strangulation and domestic battery.
Authorities booked May into the Dubois County Security Center at 12:10 p.m. Wednesday. During a court appearance that day, an initial plea of not guilty was entered in his behalf and his next court appearance was set for Aug. 6.
May was released from jail at 3:19 p.m. Wednesday but a no-contact order approved by the court barred him from contacting the victim in the case.
