A Uintah County Man Tries To Bail Out The Person Who Has A Protection Order Against Him. Doesn't End Well


| Vernal, Ut. | April 24th, 2024 |

A Uintah County man, who was the respondent on a protective order, made a bold move. He arrived at the Uintah County Jail, intending to bail out the petitioner. It was later revealed that the two had communicated on the jail's phone system for about four minutes.

Upon the man's arrival, Sgt. Hill, the officer on duty, met him in the jail lobby. Curious about his purpose, Sgt. Hill asked the man who he was there for. The man, identified as 44-year-old Mathew John Rupert, replied that he was there for the petitioner.

Sgt. Hill told Mathew there was an active protective order between them, which he stated was dropped two years ago.

Dispatch was requested to verify the protective order's status, which was confirmed to be active. The jail staff accessed the Court Exchange information, indicating the order's active status.

Mathew was informed that he was in violation of the protective order because he talked with the petitioner on the phone, came to the jail to bail her out, and waited in the lobby for her to be released. Mathew stated that he understood and was then taken into custody and booked into the Uintah County Jail for one count of violating a protective order.

All the articles that come from are from the affidavits & probable cause reports that the officers write. If you would like you can get a copy of the report from the website below. It does cost money to open every document you want to read.
