36 Felony Arraignments to Be Conducted in Collier on July 18th


Monday, July 18th is set to be a busy day for the court system as 36 separate individuals are scheduled to appear for arraignment in relation to felony charges in the Collier County Courts, according to public records. Felony arraignments are held each week on Mondays in Collier County, provided there are no federal holidays or other special arrangements.

While drug possession charges and burglary/theft-related offenses are the most common, this week's docket includes many other charges. In total, the Court will see 10 felony drug charges, seven for theft/burglary, six for eluding officers or fleeing from justice, three assault charges, and four moving violations (of a felony variety). The felony moving charges are typically repeat offenders for driving under the influence or driving with a suspended license, and this week's cases are no exception.

In addition to the charges above, arraignments are set for one case of child abuse, one for sexual assault, and one murder case that is charged as a 2nd-degree offense. There are also two administrative/licensing-related offenses.

The murder charge, case #11-2022-CF-001032-AXXX-XX, stems from June 22nd incident in Naples Manor. The defendant, Israel Catarino-Felipe, allegedly shot the victim nine times while he was lying on the couch in the living room. Catarino-Felipe rented a room from the victim and his wife. The couple's children were at home at the time the incident occurred. According to the case file, police were dispatched shortly before 6 AM. The victim entered surgery the same day and initial reports suggested he would likely survive.

Catarino-Felipe initially fled the scene and was booked by officers after a third-party caller identified him as attempting to break into his parent's home elsewhere in Naples. Original reports indicated the alleged assailant, a Mexican national, was to be transferred to I.C.E. detention.

Pursuant to the 5th, 6th, and 14th Amendments, all suspects in the United States are presumed to be innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
