House arrest in Harwich ordered for man facing child porn charges

Jason Andolina, of Uxbridge, released to house arrest at parents' home
Jason Andolina, 42, will be released to the custody of his father and will reside with his parents in Harwich, pending the outcome of child pornography charges.

Jason Andolina, an Uxbridge man who grew up in Harwich, is returning under house arrest to his parents' Harwich home.  The Worcester Telegram reports that the former Cub Scout leader and high school instructional assistant is being released with GPS monitoring to the custody of his father, Dr. Michele Andolina, of 11 Sandy Shore Way in Harwich.  Jason Andolina is a 1993 graduate of Harwich High School.

Dr. Andolina posted a $200,000 bond - the equity in his home - as collateral for his son's appearance on federal charges in Pensacola, Florida.  The bond is also to ensure that Jason Andolina receives mental health treatment, that he not have access to the Internet along with other standard conditions.

The presentation in court today included many lurid details of the investigation and evidence gathered by the Department of Homeland Security during a nearly ten month investigation.  

Jason Andolina will be staying with his father and his mother, who requires full-time assistance following a stroke some years ago.  Family members will assist in caregiving for Mary Andolina when Jason's father must accompany him to court proceedings.

Jason Andolina will return to court on Thursday for the report from the court's pretrial services.
