An Augusta man accused of beating a woman with his fists last summer before switching to a baseball bat was denied bond Thursday.

Evans Tutt, 28, has pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated assault, battery and cruelty to children in an alleged attack on his ex-girlfriend Aug. 11.

Assistant District Attor­ney Justin Jones told the judge that when the woman’s 15-year-old son confronted Tutt with a bat to stop the beating, Tutt took the bat and used it to hit the woman and her daughter.

Assistant Public Defender Todd Mitchell asked Judge Michael N. Annis to set bond for Tutt, who needs treatment for cancer. The judge denied bond but told Mitchell he might consider a conditional release if presented with evidence of medical treatment.

Tutt is scheduled to stand trial next month in Richmond County Superior Court.

No bond

keep him away from the people that he threatened and let him go. If you keep him in jail the taxpayers will end up footing his treatment bill. Money is short - none left over!
