FARMINGTON – A judge revoked bail for a Sandy River Plantation man on Monday and ordered him to head back to jail, where he will stay until his trial next week.

Freemont “Beanie” Ross, 52, was arrested in February and charged with two counts of misdemeanor assault and one count of terrorizing of a 43-year-old Rangeley woman.

The charges came after the woman called the Rangeley police and told them Ross went to her workplace and threatened her, and several days before that, had attempted to sexually assault her.

For each of the three counts, Ross faces up to 364 days in prison.

Ross was arrested by Maine State Police Trooper Matt Cassavent and was taken to the Franklin County Detention Center, where he posted $300 cash bail later that night.

Ross was later arrested after he allegedly violated his bail by having contact with the victim and as a result of that, his bail money was forfeited and on Monday, Justice Joseph Jabar ordered his bail revoked.

Jabar also refused to set new bail, and Ross is being held at the jail until his trial on the initial counts of assault and terrorizing. According to Assistant District Attorney Andrew Robinson, jury selection for Ross begins Tuesday, with a trial commencing at the end of this week or early next week.
