POLSON, Mont. -

A 10-year-old St. Ignatius boy ordered held on $500,000 bail after allegedly violating the terms of a deferred prosecution agreement in a burglary and theft case has been moved to a residential treatment center.
Lake County's chief juvenile probation officer Barb Monaco tells KERR-AM the boy was moved to Acadia Montana in Butte on Thursday after the first day of a court-ordered neuropsychological evaluation. District Judge Kim Christopher released the boy from a juvenile detention center on his own recognizance with the requirement that he be admitted to the treatment center. The center's website says it treats children ages 8 to 18 who have behavior, emotional and psychiatric disorders.
The boy's grandmother protested the $500,000 bail, but prosecutors said the boy had missed three previously scheduled evaluations.
