A St. Johnsbury man known to have violated his release conditions has been arrested for the third time this month, according to Cpl. George Johnson of the St. Johnsbury Police Department.
Erich Langmaid was jailed on $200 bond by Judge Justin Jiron, the Superior Court Judge criticized last month by a Vermont State Senator for his low-bail release policies.
Langmaid was taken into custody once again at 161 River Road, a location he has been court-ordered to avoid.
Langmaid’s release conditions, which include a curfew and the requirement to stay at least 300 feet away from the River Road residence, originated from a previous charge of aggravated domestic assault.
Langmaid’s first arrest this month was due to a failure to appear in court.
The subsequent arrests, including the most recent one on June 16, have been for breaches of his release conditions.
Upon responding to a tip that Langmaid was currently at the River Road property, Cpl. Johnson and Officer Guyer reportedly heard someone attempting to hide by climbing out of a bedroom window to a second-story porch.
Langmaid was then apprehended.
The suspect was lodged at the Northeastern Correctional Complex under a $200 cash or surety bond ordered by Jiron. – Newport Dispatch
