WARE, Mass. (WWLP) – A man arrested in March and released on $30,000 bail allegedly violated his conditions of release Saturday and will be held in a Hampshire County jail.
According to Ware Police, 53-year-old Michael A. Hunt was charged with indecent assault and battery on a child under 14 and intimidation of a witness. He was released on March 23 after posting his $30,000 bail. Part of his conditions of release was he could not have any contact with children under 16 years of age.
