WATERFORD — A day after he was released on bond for charges of possession of child pornography and sexual assault, a Waterford man faced new charges for violating his bond.
Gregory P. Frank, 67, of the 300 block of North Sixth Street in Waterford was charged in March with 16 counts of possession of child pornography and 10 counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child, both felonies. On April 5, he was additionally charged with two counts of felony bail jumping for failing to comply with the terms of his bond.
According to the criminal complaint:
Frank was released on a $25,000 cash bond for the 16 counts of possession of child pornography on April 4. The bond stipulated that he could not use any cellphones that have internet access or social media on them and that he be placed on house arrest with GPS monitoring.
Also on April 4, he was released on a $25,000 cash bond for the sexual assault charges.
On April 5, an officer was dispatched to Frank’s residence after his daughter called Waterford police. She was concerned that Frank had purchased $1,000 worth of electronics so soon after his release from custody.
He had purchased four cellphones and a Dell tablet computer from Sam’s Club in Franklin but said he had bought them for another man living in the residence. All the phones contained either photo or video files.
When an officer asked the other man if Frank had bought him anything that day, the man said Frank had bought him only a pizza.
The GPS monitoring system was placed on Frank after he bught the electronics.
Frank was being held in the Racine County Jail on Monday night, according to online records. The bond in the bail jumping case is set at $20,000.
Preliminary hearings in the pornography, sexual assault and bail jumping cases are set for 8:30 a.m. on April 12 at the Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave.
