• Pollacci Jailed for Violation of Release; then freed

    Thomas Pollacci spent several days in jail after spending too much time at church last Friday. Superior Court Judge Russell Scott ruled that was a violation of Pollacci’s release.

    At his attorney’s suggestion, Pollacci had been under GPS surveillance and confined to his parents’ home in Pebble Beach except for meetings with lawyers and to attend church. The surveillance showed he had stayed away too long last Friday. Scott raised the bail from $300,000 to $400,000, but did away with the electronic surveillance and lifted the home confinement. Pollacci was no longer in custody as of Wednesday.

    Pollacci has pleaded not guilty to three counts of rape from an incident at Ron’s Liquors, where he worked in April 2008.

    There will be a hearing in Scott’s courtroom on July 10 to determine if there is enough evidence for a trial. “He’s free to leave his house,” said prosecutor Christina Johnson. “Under the court order, he’s not to be with any unrelated females without supervision, not to give any false names and not to work in any capacity where he is checking anyone’s identification.” It was not made clear what the judge considers to be proper supervision, other than the presence of another adult. The Pacific Grove Police Department has been advised of these developments.
