KINGMAN - In a move designed to enhance security and save on transportation costs, all persons in the custody of the Mohave County jail will be arraigned at the jail rather than in Mohave County Superior Court.

Newly appointed Superior Court Commissioner Kenneth Gregory of the Bullhead City law firm of Gregory & Elias will handle all arraignments at the jail, with cases assigned to Superior Court judges Rick Williams, Steven Conn or Derek Carlisle.

People who are not in custody will be arraigned in court.

Arraignments are among the first steps in a criminal case. Defendants are given a copy of the charges against them and enter a plea.

Last Thursday, the Mohave County Grand Jury indicted 22 people, including Thomas Raymond Ogden and Jessica Rose Berry, who were arrested last week on child abuse and marijuana charges in Kingman.

The couple and their two young children reportedly lived in a home with no running water for about eight months. Law enforcement seized marijuana and paraphernalia that was allegedly within reach of their children, ages 5 and 3.

Both Ogden and Berry face two felony charges of child abuse by domestic violence, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Their arraignment is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Friday in front of Gregory at the jail. The case will be assigned to Conn.

Note: All arraignments are set for 1:30 p.m. Friday at the jail unless otherwise noted.

The grand jury also indicted:

• Hector Martin Montoya: Forgery and trafficking in stolen property in the second degree.

Conn was assigned the case.

• Dane Charles Gaunt: Shoplifting using artifice to facilitate and possession of drug paraphernalia (methamphetamine).

Williams was assigned the case.

• Abe Corte: Aggravated assault, resisting arrest and criminal damage by domestic violence.

Carlisle was assigned the case.

• Phillip Jason Tiffany: Third-degree burglary and theft.

Conn was assigned the case.

• Bryan Scott Harrington: Aggravated DUI with a minor present, aggravated DUI with a blood alcohol concentration above 0.08 percent with a minor present, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Arraignment is set for 8:30 a.m. Friday in front of Williams.

• Aaron Lee Criner: Possession of dangerous drugs (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia (methamphetamine).

Conn was assigned the case.

• Kevin Joseph Gabbard: Trafficking in stolen property.

Carlisle was assigned the case.

• Karen Lea Garner: Possession of drug paraphernalia (methamphetamine), possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Arraignment is set for 11 a.m. Monday in front of Conn.

Williams was assigned the case.

• Ramiro Flores: Aggravated DUI with a minor present and aggravated DUI with blood alcohol concentration above 0.08 percent with a minor present.

If a lack of running water and beer being consumed in the house while kids were present were illegal in Arizona we would have to arrest a quarter of the residents of Kingman and take their kids into protective custody.

My God, can you image what might have happened to those children if a half empty can of beer was within their reach?!

Hysteria is never a pretty sight.

Of course the children were taken and they were arrested. Marijuana is illegal whether you believe it should be or not does not change the law. They also left the paraphernalia in reach of the children, AND they had their children in a house with no running water. What part of that sounds like they are capable parents and should be able to keep their kids? they broke the law and their children weren't safe, bottom line. And I am completely for legalization of marijuana , i just don't let that cloud my judgement and it should not be where the children can get into it or smoked with or around the child. there is still a law in place, and you need to obey it. period.

After reading some of the comments and then the article it"s self. There is a moment when I must ask the question, did I miss something here?

The fact that these two individuals,"did" drugs with their children present was wrong, anyway you look at it!!

The adults here have "free" will, the kids on the other hand do not. So where do you place the blame? society, the laws of common sense go out the window.

How much mony will the county save when marijuana is legal?

The savings on waisted resources will add up fast, and officers can be on the street, not writing reports on plants.

what a farce. If Marijuana was legal and into to socialized medizine, they could have paid their water bills and recieved all the weed they wanted for free.

Give them some water and return their children. Or arrest everyone in Kingman that smokes cigarettes, drinks alcohol around children. Fill up the cells with more human fodder. Prison Planet Arizona. Disgusting LEOS and Prosecutors ruining lives again.

Gee Doug I guess we should all feel safer now that these criminals are off the street and the state is caring for their children. But you still seem to have left out a lot of facts in this case. Lets start with how many plants did these criminals have in their home business? It sounds like a very small business from the story. Did they have a Medical card. You know an awful lot of people can't afford to give the state 300 dollars just for the privilege of buying their meds from state run stores. These stores charge as much as street dealers and the way the law reads you can't grow your own medicine if you live within 25 miles of one which 90 percent of people do. It also sounds like a lot of trumped up charges its hard to tell because your story is so vague. If the state can take care of their children better than they can why did the governor close down the child protective services last year and start a new department. This is a waste of tax payers money. Why did they not have water for example. We can't tell from your story. Do they have any previous charges against them? Who decided that these people needed to go to jail, and have their children removed? Doug how about all the facts.
