Alleged Impostor Must Post Bond

From Staff And Wire Reports
 

Following a hearing, a $10,000 bond is still in effect for a Blackfoot man who allegedly posed as a veterinarian and physician.

Seventh District Judge James Martsch earlier had granted a motion filed by Gary Boldt’s public defender to have Boldt examined at State Hospital South last summer. Custody of Boldt was transferred from the Bingham County Jail to the hospital.

In September, Boldt, 42, was released when outpatient care was recommended. He has missed several appointments with his Pocatello psychiatrist as well as Friday’s court hearing.

Boldt has left the area and is in Arizona, his attorney, Scott Hansen, told the judge. Hansen said he left messages on Boldt’s answering machine and Boldt sent a fax indicating he would be back on Dec. 1.

On Friday, Martsch said Boldt was never released on his own recognizance and is to post the bond on or before Dec. 2, by 4 p.m.

Boldt faces 18 different counts ranging from practicing medicine without a license to writing bad checks, court records show.
