Alleged kidnapper and attempted murder suspect Mack Varnum has a better chance of getting out of jail. Judge Rory T. Thibault struck the responsible adult (condition #4) from Varnum’s conditions of release on Friday. Varnum, 45, of Peacham, will still have to pay $50,000 bail, but he won’t have to convince the court that he could be released into the custody of a responsible adult who would be required to report any violations of conditions of release. It was Varnum’s third time asking the court to release him, and he could reach an agreement with a bail bondsman to post bail. As of Friday night, Varnum remains in pre-trial detention at Northeast Correctional Complex in St. Johnsbury.
