Bail set at $100k for Centralia man charged in multiple cases since March

MARION COUNTY — A 35-year-old Centralia man is in the Marion County Jail with bail set at $100,000 following a string of arrests that started with domestic battery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charges in March.

Michael P. Kaminski Jr., was arrested Thursday by Centralia police and charged in court with misdemeanor domestic battery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, violation of bail bond, criminal damage to property, and resisting a peace officer.

Kaminski was originally charged in March with domestic battery causing bodily harm, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He posted bond and was released under special conditions that he not have contact with the alleged victim.

A few days later he was arrested for alleged felony possession of less than 5-grams of methamphetamine and was released on the same bond.

Jumping ahead to May, Kaminski was arrested on two counts violating conditions of bond, and his $5,000 bail was increased by $7,500. He again posted 10-percent cash bond and was released, again with the special condition of having no contact with the alleged victim or her residence.

His latest arrest, despite all charges being misdemeanors, resulted in bail being set at $100,000 and all 2016 cases tracking together. Kaminski is next due in court November 22. He’ll have to post $10,000 cash to be released, with the same special conditions of having no contact with the alleged victim or her residence.
