A Barton man suspected of firing multiple gunshots through his next-door neighbor’s house has been accused of violating his conditions of release again. Brent A. Bapp, 37, pleaded not guilty to the new VCR charge on Tuesday and was released on conditions. Bapp has been charged with multiple VCRs since the alleged shooting incident occurred in July of 2021 on Burton Hill Rd in Barton. According to court documents, Bapp violated his 24-hour curfew by leaving his current residence on Maple Street in Orleans. Bapp is accused by witness Brooke Watson, 23, of driving a truck into the driveway of his old residence located on Leblanc Road in the Town of Barton on Feb. 12. Watson in her sworn written statement to police said “I was on my way home, while riding with my boyfriend on Leblanc Road, and had to stop in the road as there was one of Brent’s two-toned trucks taking up the whole road attempting to back into the driveway.” Bapp faces a possible sentence of up to six months in prison and a $1,000 fine on his new VCR charge. Bapp also faces a possible sentence of over 11 years in prison and $13,000 in fines on the 2021 charges.
