FITCHBURG, Mass. (AP) — A judge has agreed to ease pretrial conditions for three people charged with misleading police investigating the disappearance and death of a 5-year-old boy from Fitchburg.
The judge ruled Wednesday that Caily Thibault and Ashley Cormier must report to the probation office in person three times a week and once by telephone instead of in person four days a week.
Christian Sierra is now allowed to report in person once a week and by telephone three times a week because of his job.
The Sentinel & Enterprise reports that the judge refused to lift a ban on interstate travel.
All three are charged with intimidation of a witness in the case of Jeremiah Oliver, who was reported missing in December and found dead in April.
