BOULDER, Colo. –

Alex Midyette faces a possible charge of violating his bail bond conditions, a class-six felony.

If he’s convicted, the charge carries a presumptive sentencing range of one year to 18 months in the Department of Corrections.

The charge, expected to be filed at a hearing Tuesday, is considered separate from Midyette’s conviction for criminally negligent child abuse in the death of his 11-week-old son.

However, Boulder County District Judge Lael Montgomery â who will oversee Midyette’s sentencing hearing April 20 â can take the new alleged violation into consideration, said Catherine Olguin, a spokeswoman for the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office.

“It would be left entirely up to the judge,” Olguin said.

She said the new allegation will be treated as an entirely new case for Midyette, and could include a preliminary hearing, or even a jury trial.

Because Midyette was already a convicted felon in the case of his son’s death, Olguin said, prosecutors requested that his bond in the new case be set at $10 million. That amount is in addition to a $10 million bond set Friday after a judge revoked his previous $1.5 million bond.

Midyette will not be forced to forfeit his original bond, however. That only happens when a suspect fails to show up in court, officials said.

Note to judge Montgomery. This guy is basically dissing you. He is making a public statement that he, by virtue of his rich old dad, is above the law, and not subject to your stated conditions regarding his bond. Note to Jay Nold. No jury, at least not one in Boulder county would convict you for doing the right thing here. Note to Alex, You are hereby awarded the highest honor of anyone of your intellectual capacity. We hereby confer upon you the top spot in the annual Darwin awards. This guy is unbelievable. First daddy spends a small fortune to buy him an unbelievably light tap on the wrist for the crimes he and the bikini babe committed, and he throws it away.And for what? A trip to the cougars den. Hey Alex, hope that old gal was worth it dude! Oh and BTW Sweaters can be a little hard to come by this time of year.

Or, to put it another way, according to the Boulder County DA’s office, Alex is ALREADY A CONVICTED FELON.

Congratulations for the excellent work by the prosecutors and probation people who this month put two hideous psychopathic murderers, Alex Midyette and John Engel, behind bars where they belong.

Boulder’s soft-on-crime judges, in these cases The Honorable Lael Montgomery andThe Honorable Carol Glowinski, stay awake nights to come up with ways to release convicted killers from the incarceration they deserve.

Thankfully there are others at work in thecriminal justice system with a real commitment to both protecting the public’s safety and serving the cause of justice.

LOL! Now you’re catching on TCW. Welcome back.

Reminder: According to the DA’s office, a “small foreign faction” kidnapped and killed JonBenet Ramsey.

I found it interesting that his new girlfriend not only had her own children, but had an entire daycare business.

I was wondering whether Alex Midyette resented the judge’s determination that he could not be trusted around children and he was out to prove her wrong. He spent more time with these new children than with his son and none of them were killed. Of course, the children will need to be interviewed to determine whether any of them were harmed.

… or has a mysterious metabolic disorder …

BTW – What “contact” did Alex have — like exactly — with these children?
