A man accused of assaulting a child this past summer in Concord could face pretrial incarceration if he does not follow through with a substance abuse evaluation.

Prosecutors allege Bradley Mobbs, 28, of Loudon has violated the conditions of his bail seven times since his arrest in June, mainly by using marijuana and cocaine. Mobbs, who is under the supervision of the Merrimack County’s Pretrial Services, also failed to comply with required daily check-ins with program staff, according to court records.

Assistant County Attorney Wayne Coull filed a motion in Merrimack County Superior Court in late December requesting that a judge revoke Mobbs’s bail due to his repeated failures to comply.

“While the violations individually may not be the worst the court has ever seen, the habitual nature of them demonstrates that the defendant really doesn’t seem to appreciate nor care to comply with the condition of being of good behavior on bail,” Coull wrote.

The court had scheduled a bail hearing in January to take up the request, but it was postponed until mid-February, or later, on the condition that Mobbs undergo a substance abuse evaluation by a certified alcohol and drug abuse counselor. Mobbs is required to provide proof of his attendance at his appointments, according to the agreement.

Prosecutors reserved the right to request a bail hearing sooner if those conditions are not met.

Mobbs faces charges of second-degree assault and endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly beating a boy on the buttocks and pushing him into a wall, causing an ear injury. The child was treated for his injuries at Concord Hospital and later released.

A two-day trial in the case is scheduled to begin March 20 with jury selection.
