Man extradited from Texas to face stalking and extortion charges

Special to the Daily |

John Dailey McCallister was released from the Summit County Jail on a $4,000 bond on Monday, August 15. He was booked into county on the evening of Friday, August 12 after being extradited from Harris County, Texas, to face charges of criminal extortion, stalking and harassment.

He met bail several hours after being booked but was detained again on August 14 after Judge Jonathan Shamis revoked his bond and ordered he be held until seeing a Summit County judge.

McCallister, however, was released from jail the following morning after Judge Edward Casias overrode Shamis’ order, saying that since the defendant is not accused of a capital offense, he is entitled to post his original bond. He is scheduled to appear in court in September.
