Banished man in jail after failing to leave town By Jesse Evans, Hopeprescott.com 07/24/13 6:03 PM Marcus Todd- Calling a judge’s bluff after he banishes you from the county is probably not the wisest move unless, of course, you want to spend the next four months in jail. A Prescott man who was recently banished from Nevada County has plenty of time to consider his decision to stay in the county as he serves the next 120 days in jail for failing to comply with the judge’s orders. Marcus Todd, 36, was banished from Nevada County by Judge Tony Yocum in District Court Wednesday, July 10 after being given the choice of banishment or jail. Todd was in court that day facing seven total charges, three for theft of property, one for fleeing, another for endangering the welfare of a minor, public intoxication and failure to appear. Todd chose banishment and Judge Yocum gave him until Monday, July 15 to comply with the order. According to Nevada County Sheriff Danny Martin, Todd was arrested Tuesday, July 23 by an officer with the Prescott Police Department. Prescott Assistant Police Chief Joey Beavers said that the police department received a call of a tall, black male going door to door soliciting money for his wife and baby who he said were sick. According to Beavers, when officers arrived on scene they recognized Todd and approached him. As the officers approached Todd, he began walking away. The quicker the officers approached him, the faster Todd moved away. Todd was told to stop but did not comply. Corporal Obie Laurent warned Todd if he did not stop, he would taze him. When Todd refused to heed the warning, Cpl. Laurent tazed him and took him in to custody. Todd appeared before Judge Yocum again Wednsesday where he received a jail sentence of 120 days for failing to comply with the previous order. Todd is currently serving his sentence in the Nevada County Jail.

The Prescott Police Department wants all children to have a safe and enjoyable summer vacation while getting energized for the following school year. However, Child Safety starts with the Parents/Guardians. We all must teach our children to be safe and to follow our lead in personal safety. Take the time to talk to your children about personal safety. Don't assume your child knows what to do. In the City of Prescott, the curfew regulations for children under the age of 18 are 10:00pm weekdays and 12:00pm weekends, unless accompanied by a parent/guardian or an adult authorized by a parent/guardian. Parents of children caught breaking this curfew violation can be penalized by fines and/or community service. Have a safe and happy Summer! Chief Brian Russell
