Teacher arrest update


Waltham teacher Robert Dacey, who Middlesex County prosecutors allege sexually assaulted three students, pleaded not guilty to a variety of charges this morning and was ordered held on $25,000 bail.

Waltham Police arrested Dacey without incident at his Waltham home at approximately 10:30 p.m. on Friday, prosecutors said. He was held over the weekend on $500,000 bail at the Waltham Police Department.

This morning, Waltham District Court Judge Gregory Flynn set the new bail and ordered that, if Dacey posts it, he will be on house arrest at the home of his sister with an electronic monitoring bracelet.

Flynn also held ruled that Dacey stay away from all schools, stay off the Internet, and refrain from contact with the alleged victims, their families, and with children under the age of 16.

Dacey is due back in court on September 11, for a status report, prosecutors said.
