Former CEO accused of child porn possession returns to jail

Editor’s Note: Child pornography charges were eventually dismissed.

BRECKENRIDGE – Dennis Flint returned to jail on Sunday after turning himself in on a charge of violating bond conditions from a pending felony case involving charges of child porn possession.

Flint’s bond conditions required that he have no contact with children under age 18. He’s been charged with violating that condition by living with children from May to November on the Front Range, said Anne Francis, prosecutor with Colorado Fifth Judicial District Attorney Mark Hurlbert’s office.

Summit County Judge D. Wayne Patton on Tuesday lowered Flint’s bail from $150,000 to $50,000 after public defender Dale McPhetres – who substituted for Dana Christiansen – requested it be modified.

There have been several hearings since the felony charges were brought against Flint in March, and McPhetres said “Flint has made every single one of those appearances.”

Francis said that while Flint is “not necessarily a flight risk,” there could be concern for the “public safety of children.”

Flint, former High Country Health Care CEO, remained in Summit County Jail on Tuesday afternoon.

He was also on the docket Tuesday for appearance of legal counsel on pending misdemeanor charges – including charges of child abuse and third-degree assault involving his daughter – stemming from an incident in December 2008.

A jury trial for this case had been scheduled for August but was continued.

In early November, Flint’s attorneys John Newsome and Timothy Bussey withdrew from representing him on the misdemeanor charges.

A preliminary hearing on the felony charges of violating bond conditions is scheduled for Dec. 15 at 1:30 p.m.
