Though he allegedly broke his court-appointed curfew six times over the past six months, former University of Michigan Health System resident Stephen Jenson will no longer be held to a curfew or several other court-ordered restrictions.
Earlier this month, Jenson, who faces charges of possession of child pornography within the University Hospital, was accused of repeatedly violating his curfew and using a computer not monitored by the court.
After repeated violations, Jenson’s nightly curfew was curtailed from an 8 p.m. start time to a 5 p.m. start time, but he still violated the curfew. In a court hearing Wednesday, the terms of his release were once again adjusted.
Many of the prior conditions of Jenson’s release — including avoiding contact with minors or anyone who could be a potential victim or witness in the case, location monitoring, obeying a curfew and refraining from possessing a firearm — were removed.
Per court documents, Jenson’s computer use will continue to be monitored by the court as it was under the previous bond agreement. He will continue to undergo sex offender treatment and his travel will continue to be restricted to the Eastern District of Michigan and pre-approved trips to Utah, where his family lives. In addition, Wednesday’s hearing added that Jenson is to refrain from consuming alcohol.
Raymond Cassar, Jenson's defense attorney, could not be reached for comment.
