BEND, Ore. (AP) -- Authorities say the director of a charter school in Redmond accused of sexually abusing a student has violated the terms of his release and been sent back to jail.

The Bend Bulletin reported Friday (http://bit.ly/wg8kfd) that 39-year-old Michael Bremont was being held on $500,000 bail.

He was arrested Saturday and released the next day with bail set at $30,500.

He was required to stay in the state and not contact the victim.

Authorities say he was arrested in Albany but wouldn't say how he violated the conditions. He faces a new charge, contempt.

Bremont, on paid administrative leave, led the Redmond Proficiency Academy for high school students. It opened in 2009.

Court documents say the victim is younger than 16 and the abuse occurred between October 2009 and September 2010.
