Aspen suspect turns himself in

ASPEN ” A 21-year-old man turned himself in Tuesday at Pitkin County jail, one day after a judge upped his bond to $60,000 for failure to appear at a sentencing hearing.

Daniel Rave-Munoz reported to the jail Tuesday afternoon, the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office said. He is expected to appear Wednesday before Judge Erin Fernandez-Ely in county court.

Rave-Munoz was arrested in July after he was involved in a scuffle with his girl­friend inside the Hyatt Grand Aspen. The district attorney’s office charged him with eight counts, ranging from first-degree burglary to false imprisonment.

He later pleaded guilty in November to lesser misdemeanor counts. In exchange, he was to be sentenced to probation Monday.

Rave-Munoz also had to complete domestic violence classes prior to Monday’s court hearing.

Because he did not show up Monday for his sentencing, Senior Judge Thomas W. Ossola of Pitkin County District Court doubled his bond amount to $60,000 from $30,000.
