Amiot held behind bars until next court hearing

DULUTH, MN – The man sentenced in connection with burning down a downtown Duluth Synagogue in September is back behind bars.

In a St. Louis County courtroom Thursday morning, Judge Shaun Floerke entered a denial of the violation charge on Amiot’s behalf.

He also ordered Matthew Amiot be held behind bars without bail until his next hearing.

This comes after police arrested the 36-year-old on a warrant Tuesday after he allegedly violated his probation.

Police say he walked away from the Bethel Rehabilitation Center after completing his intake, required as part of his sentence.

Amiot is due back in court for a contested hearing next Friday.
