A Summit County Court judge reduced the bond of a 22-year-old man accused of felony home invasion. Dylan Haas’ bond was reduced to $10,000 cash or surety with strict probation terms to match.

Summit County Judge Edward Casias said allegations included entering someone’s home, refusing to leave when told and engaging in a fight resulting in an individual being cut. Haas was arrested on Nov. 17, with charges including second-degree attempted murder, first-degree burglary and second-degree assault.

If Haas posts bond, he would still be subject to a protection order, a curfew and drug testing per the conditions.

“You’re on a tight leash, Mr. Haas,” Casias said. “If you blow it, don’t ask for another chance.”

He further continued that he was concerned about potential violation of a protection order or repeated behavior.

“Is he going to be with the people he was with that night who have caused him to be arrested?” Casias asked.

Public defender Carolin Whippo noted that several of Haas’ family and friends had consistently appeared in court, that he had a job in the county and community support. While there was some discussion as to whether they had contacted the victim of the alleged break-in, “I don’t believe there will be any future contact,” Whippo said.

Deputy district attorney Alexandra Deitz asked that the court not reduce Haas’ bond, considering the serious nature of the charges and his prior criminal history.

Casias noted Haas face two habitual criminal counts, one including a prior burglary charge. In 2012, Haas was convicted of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in Freeport, Illinois.

Haas will appear in court on Jan. 5 at 11 a.m.
