A week before Cody Myott was caught with guns on Farrar Road in Newport, he was allegedly seen walking with a handgun on public school property. Myott, 30, of Newport Center, pleaded not guilty on Tuesday in Orleans Superior Court to four charges of violating conditions of release based on charges in 2022. Myott was then released on personal recognizance by Judge Justin P. Jiron. However, Myott remains held in jail without bail after he was released by Judge Jiron on Oct. 31 and then went home and allegedly beat a woman and a child. On that day, Orleans County State’s Attorney Farzana Leyva had argued that Myott should be ordered to an in-patient mental health facility. In addition, a mental health specialist who was in the courtroom also wanted the judge to order Myott into an in-patient mental health facility. But Judge Jiron released Myott on conditions and he allegedly went home and beat his condition #4 person (responsible adult) and grabbed an eight-year-old child and threw him to the floor. On Nov. 1, Myott was then held without bail by Judge Jiron.
