A convicted sex offender who failed to register as such in Putnam County was granted bond and released last week.
Dennis Dean was brought up on charges for failure to register as a sex offender, resisting law enforcement and petition to revoke probation in regards to a previous case.
In the initial hearing, Judge Diana LaViolette, who was sitting in for Judge Headley last week, granted Dean a $10,000 bond with 10-percent down.
Deputy Prosecutor Justin Long said, "We objected to the bond, but it was still granted."
Attorney Jim Holder was recently hired by Dean to represent him in the upcoming trial.
As of yet, no date has been set for a trial.
"This case is still in the discovery phase," Long commented.
Dean's prior conviction was for sexual misconduct with a minor. Indiana law requires convicted offenders to register their name and address.
