Family members say man with multiple domestic violence charges was only

WICHITA FALLS, TX. (KFDX/KJTL) — A man who a prosecutor said has been assaulting or threatening two women, getting jailed, bonding out, and doing the same things over and over is denied a reduction in bond over concerns of the safety of the victims and community.

Jake Todd Kyle has been jailed on bonds totaling $245,000 since last September on 16 charges. Before that, he had bonded out six times, with 143 charges in about 5 months.

His attorney, Dustin Nimz, filed for a reduction in bonds because he said Kyle needs to get out and work to make some money.

His father testified in the hearing that Kyle is a good worker and would work for his drywall business.

He also testified that the charges against his son came about because a victim was trying to get him in trouble by provoking him and even clawed him in the face, and his main problem was that he fell for her tactics.

Prosecutor Misty King asked him if that was the case in each of the nine charges, and he said yes.
Kyle’s brother testified he believed his brother was only defending himself.

King objected to any reduction of bond, saying the victims are in fear of him and it would put the community at risk.

Judge Charles Barnard denied the bond reduction on those grounds.

Kyle’s charges for this latest bond include four family violence assaults, two for burglary to commit another felony, criminal mischief, retaliation, violating a bond or protective order, two assaults,
terroristic threat and interfering with an emergency call for help.
