48-year-old Fall River man wanted after failing to appear on crimes against children



State and local police are actively seeking a 48-year-old Fall River man who failed to show up for the start of his Fall River Superior Court jury trial Monday.

Scott Fontaine was scheduled to go to trial Monday morning on indictments charging him with Indecent Assault and Battery on a Person Under the Age of 14, Pose/Exhibit a Child in Nude and Possessing Child Pornography.

Fontaine posted $10,000 cash bail during the pendency of his case and was ordered to appear in court Monday morning for the beginning of his criminal trial.

After failing to appear in court, Judge Renee Dupuis issued an arrest warrant for Fontaine. State and local police have made numerous efforts to locate him during the past 24 hours.

If anyone has information on the whereabouts of the defendant, they are urged to call Fall River Police at 508-676-8511. If you wish to call anonymously, you can do so by calling 508-672-TIPS (8477). You can also utilize District Attorney Tom Quinn’s anonymous text-a-tip program by texting the word “Bristol” to the phone number CRIMES (274637).
