Still 'working' at 72


Salem police Lt. Conrad Prosniewski, the police prosecutor, sought bail of $50,000 cash. Boutin and his lawyer for the day, Christopher Beares, agreed to the amount, which was then set by a judge.

Although Boutin is on probation in South Boston, his probation officer there did not ask that Boutin be detained for violating his probation, something that surprised Judge Matthew Nestor.

“With this record, (and) he has an open case, he’s on a split (sentence) out of South Boston, and South Boston wants him to just go in on his own?” an incredulous Nestor asked the probation officer on duty in the courtroom. He went on to ask the probation officer whom she spoke to there.

Boutin, who had already been scheduled to appear again in Salem District Court on Oct. 22 in the trespassing case, will be back in court that day on both new cases, to be appointed a lawyer from the state public defender’s office.
