  • Michael Hagan made a video appearance in Associate Court at Hannibal on Friday, May 9, before Judge John J. Jackson.
    He is being held in the Marion County Jail at Palmyra on three Class D felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon.
    Hannibal police report they arrested Hagan after they were called to the 300 block of North Main at 12:10 a.m. Sunday, May 4, for a disturbance involving a man waving a gun around and pointing it at people.
    Hagan was granted a furlough on May 5, for an evaluation at Preferred Family Healthcare in Jefferson City.
    In court on Friday, May 9, Hagan’s attorney, James C. Ochs of Clayton, told the judge that alcohol was a driving factor in the incident, but that there are also other mental health issues.
    In his request for a bond reduction for his client, Ochs noted that his client has lost his job at a local bank, and that he has no prior criminal record.
    Prosecutor David N. Clayton said that while he would like to consent to a bond reduction, due to the seriousness of the crime, he could not.
    In declining to reduce the bond, Judge Jackson said he wants to know specifically what counseling is recommended. “I need more details,” he said, before agreeing to the bond reduction motion.
    “If there are new developments on the bond issue, I’m here (in Associate Court) every Friday,” the judge said.
    The judge ordered the evaluation records sealed.
    Hagan’s preliminary hearing has been scheduled for 9 a.m. June 23 at Hannibal.
    Hagan’s bond is set at $50,000, cash only.
