A 42-year-old Portage man faces one felony and one misdemeanor charge, stemming from allegations that he held a woman against her will.
Shawn M. LaRush made his initial appearance Monday in Columbia County Circuit Court, via videoconference from the Columbia County Jail. He is charged with false imprisonment, a felony that carries a maximum prison sentence of six years, and disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor that carries a maximum jail sentence of 90 days.
The criminal complaint, filed in Columbia County Circuit Court, alleges that on Saturday, LaRush held a woman against her will in a Portage apartment, by grabbing her wrists and holding her against a door.
Judge W. Andrew Voigt set LaRush’s cash bond at $150, and ordered him to have no contact with the victim at her home or workplace. He also ordered LaRush to maintain absolute sobriety.
