The Jackson County Circuit Court docket shows a Feb. 13 court date for Nathan Blake McCrory on a motion to reduce bond.

McCrory, 25, was in court Jan. 30 for a bond-revocation hearing after prosecutors said he tried to intimidate a witness in his upcoming trial on four counts of child abuse of his then-3-year-old son, Zander Saucier.

On Jan. 31, Judge Robert Krebs agreed to allow McCrory to stay free on $100,000 bond pending trial. However, he has not posted bail and remains in the Jackson County jail.

The agreement hinges on McCrory adhering to the conditions of wearing a GPS and alcohol-monitoring device; staying away from witnesses, including one of the children who allegedly witnessed the abuse of the little boy; and to stay at a single address in Jackson County unless he’s going to see his attorney.

Krebs set a tentative trial date of July 24 and will hear motions in the case June 22.
