Judge grants bail with home monitoring for GSI defendant Terry Albers, Douglas

Judge Gary Lee granted bail with home monitoring on Monday for Terry Lee Albers, 62, of Douglas.

Albers, who is already on the state’s sex offender registry, is facing two Class AA felony gross sexual imposition charges dating back to 2008. He was not charged with the offenses until this March, even though they are alleged to date back 12 years.

His attorney had asked the court last month to allow Albers to be released and placed on house arrest until he goes to trial in January because Albers is in poor health and at high risk of complications if he contracts COVID-19.

Judge Lee allowed Albers to be released on an unsecured appearance bond of $100,000 and remain under home confinement under GPS monitoring by Adapt, Inc. Albers must pay the cost of the home monitoring. He is allowed to leave his home only for medical care and must notify the sheriff’s office two days in advance if he has a medical appointment. He is allowed to drive himself to and from the medical appointment and to go nowhere else. He is also ordered to have no contact with children under the age of 18 as a condition of bond.

Albers had been held in custody at the Ward County Jail since he was arrested on the charges in March.
