Jeff Thomas on House Arrest

The fate of suspended Somerset County District Attorney Jeff Thomas has been decided for the next few months.

Thomas was ordered to Adult Probation during the hearing this Morning and his bail has been revoked by the Attorney General’s office.

The decision follows Attorney General Josh Shapiro’s motion that was made Yesterday to revoke Thomas’s bail in light of new charges that came out this week.

Judge Creany decided that Thomas’s bond would be revoked & that he will be on Adult Probation.

Creany says Thomas must reside at his parents home in Windber, he cannot have contact with his wife or witnesses, and that he will have an ankle monitor with GPS installed.

Thomas was present in the courtroom as his wife and mother testified on his behalf.

The AG’s office attorneys argued that Thomas is a quote dangerous person who cannot be trusted until he gets to trial, and that full incarceration is too harsh.

Defense Attorney Ryan Tutera argued that the citations Thomas received were simple and minor and that many of the incidents happened a year ago and were reported late.

Tutera told us that he is not commenting on whether or not this decision impacts Thomas’s plans to resign as District Attorney.
