LACONIA (AP) — A judge has ruled that a man charged with sexually assaulting a child cannot publicly attend church, but can worship privately with a pastor.

Mark Thurber was arrested last week by Meredith police. He’s accused of having sex with a girl under age 13 between January 2007 and December 2010.

The Citizen reports Judge James Carroll set the 42-year-old Thurber’s bail at $50,000 personal recognizance and $5,000 cash on Friday and imposed conditions during the bail hearing.

Thurber’s attorney, John Bresaw, said he wanted to object on constitutional grounds to restrictions placed on Thurber’s religious freedom and travel. Carroll said Thurber’s bail conditions did not violate his First Amendment rights to religious freedom, as Thurber’s right to practice his faith was preserved, but restricted to protect the public.
