Clallam County Superior Court

Glen Jonientz - Clallam County Superior Court issued a bench warrant Feb. 4 for the arrest of Jonientz, 28, of Sequim, for failure to appear in court on the charge of first-degree theft.

In 2008, a Sequim woman reported that a former caregiver, reportedly Jonientz, made unauthorized purchases on her credit card. Jonientz has access to the credit card account because of his duties to take care of the disabled woman, who was unable to go shopping with him.

He allegedly charged more than $8,000 to the woman's account.



William Samuel Keitzman - Keitzman, 45, of Sequim, saw his case dismissed from Clallam County Superior Court Jan. 30.

Keitzman had faced the charge of unlawful imprisonment, a count connected to domestic violence. The case was dismissed without prejudice, meaning prosecutors will be able to file the case again if issues related to the dismissal are resolved.

Court records show the case was dismissed due to an uncooperative victim and witness in the case.



Guy Ralph - Ralph, 30, of Sequim, saw his case dismissed from Clallam County Superior Court Jan. 30.

Court records show the case was dismissed due to a law enforcement internal investigation.

Ralph previously faced the charge of attempted manufacture of methamphetamine. The case was dismissed without prejudice, meaning prosecutors will be able to file the case again if issues related to the dismissal are resolved.

Ralph's original charge stemmed from an assault complaint where officers noticed materials generally used for the production of methamphetamine.



Michael Parmenter - Parmenter, 19, of Sequim, entered into a Clallam County Drug Court contract Jan. 16. If Parmenter is successful in complying with the conditions of the contract, the charges against him - which include forgery and three counts of second-degree theft - will be dismissed.

If he is unsuccessful, the charges will be brought against him again in Superior Court.

They stemmed from reports Parmenter allegedly stole 22 checks from his uncle and aunt and forged their names in order to take money from their checking accounts.
