a 59-year-old Great Falls man charged back in January with sexually assaulting his 13-year-old granddaughter is back in the county jail today after violating conditions for his release. Cascade County Attorney Josh Racki says Robert Dunkerson violated conditions for his release by contacting a potential witness in his case.

Racki says Dunkerson reportedly reached out to the mother of the grandchild by leaving a note on her vehicle. In the note he told his daughter that he loved her and wanted her to come over to talk to him. He added, no police, I just need to talk to family without lawyers or police.

Dunkerson was out on bond with an ankle bracelet and was ordered to have no contact with anyone involved in the case. His bond has now been set at $250,000.

Below is a copy of a court document stating what the note said.
