Three bail bondsmen were indicted on charges they robbed and extorted at least four female clients, state prosecutors said.
Charles McChesney, 48, John Kevin McCabe, 61, and John Kevin McCabe Jr., 22, face robbery, kidnapping, sexual assault, burglary and extortion charges.
State investigators said in one instance McChesney and the elder McCabe broke down the door of a woman’s home in January 2011 and held her and her three young children at gunpoint while they rummaged through the home.
The two men forced the woman to sign power of attorney and then took personal property, including a laptop computer and her 2006 Monte Carlo.
In April, McCabe and McCabe Jr. kidnapped a woman and extorted money from her, the indictment alleged. McCabe was also accused of sexually assaulting the victim, according to the indictment.
McChesney, who faces a growing list of federal and state criminal charges, also allegedly threatened the life of a state insurance investigator who put together this criminal case, which is being prosecuted by the Nevada Attorney General’s office.
In a seperate case, McChesney faces federal charges in a scheme to take over homeowners associations. In January, McChesney was indicted by a federal grand jury with Leon Benzer, the accused mastermind of the HOA scheme, and nine other defendants. He faces one conspiracy count and 14 wire fraud counts.
