A Boonville child molestation suspect is back in the Cooper County Jail after allegedly violating the conditions of his bond by leaving home six times in a week, including multiple trips to Walmart and one to Columbia.

Bob Bosma was booked Friday morning into the Cooper County Jail, according to online jail records. The jail released Bosma on Nov. 8 after a judge in his child molestation case ordered that he be let out on his own recognizance.

A grand jury indicted Bosma in October with a single count of first-degree child molestation. He is accused of having sexual contact with a child under 14 years old in a July incident.

Bosma was put on house arrest as a condition of his bond. However, he went to the Boonville Walmart at least three times between Nov. 10 and Nov. 15, a Chinese buffet in Boonville on Nov. 15, a Breaktime store on Saturday and a Columbia restaurant on Sunday, according to the motion to revoke his bond.

A judge issued a warrant for Bosma's arrest Thursday.

Bosma's attorney, Kevin O'Brien, was not immediately available for comment. Bosma's next hearing is set for Monday.
