Man facing child porn charges released

In addition to the other conditions of his release, a $50,000 secured bond was required by the court, according to Dilorio-Sterling.

“If he doesn’t appear when he’s supposed to appear, or he flees, the government can seize $50,000 from his property,” she said.

Philip Cormier, Thomas’ attorney, could not be reached for comment.

In a memorandum arguing for Thomas’ release, Cormier wrote that Fournier has a background in mental health counseling. While she has three grown children, “she lives alone in a single-family residence located on a secluded lot with one other home, which has no children,” the memorandum reads.

The two have never been romantically involved, according to Cormier. Fournier also has a computer in her home, “but she is willing to discontinue Internet services and, if necessary, remove her computer from the home,” reads a court document filed by Cormier.

The address of Fournier’s home is not available to the public, Dilorio-Sterling said. The court order releasing Thomas from prison indicates that Fournier lives in Ipswich, but no further information was available.

“It was not discussed in open court, and it wasn’t part of any of the court filings. Therefore, her address can’t be provided,” Dilorio-Sterling said.

A phone call to Ipswich town officials to confirm Fournier’s residency was not returned.
