A suspect was brought in for charges related to domestic violence last Monday, June 1, according to an official report by the Madera County Department of Corrections. Jose De Los Alcaraz, 36, was arrested by Sheriff’s Deputies and booked at 8:05 am on charges of felony inflicting corporal injury on a spouse or co-habitant, and misdemeanor dissuading or preventing a witness or victim from testifying. These two charges resulted in a $50,000 bail, with the addition of $5,000 more for violating terms of his probation.
The suspect, who lists his occupation as laborer, has a history of sometimes violent offenses over the past seven years. Records show that in 2008 he was charged with possessing or manufacturing a dangerous weapon. That was followed by a November 2011 arrest for false imprisonment by violence. A year later, in December 2012, he was charged with being a convicted felon in possession of ammunition. He faced a probation violation charge in August of 2013.
Alcarza currently resides in a home in East Madera, near Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School.
