Fotis Dulos, the estranged husband of the missing Connecticut mother Jennifer Dulos, was told by a judge that he had not charged his ankle monitor when he appeared in court on charges of tampering with evidence.
Jennifer has been missing since May 24 when she last dropped off the couple's five children at school.
The police have not found her body, but they think that she has undergone a serious attack in her house in the following hours. Traces of her blood and other DNA were found in the car that Fotis used that day.
He and his former former mistress, Michelle Troconis, have both been accused of manipulating evidence.
Fotis, a Greek subject, denies having anything to do with the disappearance of his estranged wife and has stated in interviews that he believes she is still alive.
Fotis Dulos is pictured Monday in the court in Stamford, Connecticut, where he was told that he did not charge his ankle monitor sufficiently
Fotis lawyer, Norm Pattis, complained after the hearing about a wage injunction that the judge had recently implemented to prevent him from speaking to the press about the case
Troconis did not speak to the media and changed her story in August to admit to the police that she had made an alibi for her rich boyfriend, according to accusing documents.
Jennifer Dulos has not been seen since 24 May
On Monday, Fotis was back in court to be warned of the ankle monitor.
His probation officer complained to the court that he often dropped it below 25 percent, which is a warning sign.
Fotis, who had asked to move it from his ankle to his arm and was told no, argued that the monitor is not needed.
His lawyer, Norm Pattis, told the court that, because he was not accused of a violent crime, he should not bear it.
He was rejected. The judge also rejected his request to attend a statement in which his girlfriend must participate as part of a separate case.
While the criminal investigation into Jenny's disappearance continues, Fotis is also fighting a civil complaint from her family.
Dulos complained that his ankle monitor irritated his skin and asked if he could move it to his hand. The judge said no
Dulos and his lawyer Norm Pattis will arrive at the Superior Court in Stamford on Monday
Pattis enraged the judge by publicly suggesting that Jennifer committed suicide and stepped up her disappearance in a & # 39; Gone Girl & # 39; inspired plot
The two of them participated in media interviews in which they protested against his innocence and said that Jennifer might still be alive
They say they owe him $ 2.5 million in unpaid loans they gave his company before he and Jennifer broke up. He denies it and said the money was a gift.
Troconis is filed as part of that case, despite the fact that Troconis' lawyer has filed a petition with the court to keep them apart.
The judge said on Monday that he would not be allowed to attend the deposition, but that he could watch it via closed television.
His lawyer has submitted a request to reject the complaint. The judge agreed to hear arguments on 4 October.
The girlfriend and co-accused of Fotis, Michelle Troconis, will be filed by Jenny's family lawyers as part of a lawsuit against him. He wants to attend the statement, but is not allowed. The family says he owes them $ 2.5 million
The judge has also issued a verbal injunction to prevent both parties from discussing the case in public.
It comes after a series of daring public statements from the Fotis lawyer, including that Jennifer may have staged her own disappearance and killed herself as part of an op & # 39; Gone Girl & # 39; inspired plot.
Jennifer's family, who is still looking for her, fell ill with the suggestion, as did her friends.
The police are also penalized for sharing reports, including one, in the most recent round of allegations, describing their theories and suspicions.
In that report they quoted a Fotis employee who said he had acted strangely the day Jennifer disappeared and used his vehicle.
The employee claimed that Fotis then urged him to change the seats. He removed them but clung to parts that he says Fotis wanted to destroy.
When the authorities tested them, they say they found traces of Jennifer's blood.
Police also believe they have images of Fotis and Michelle depositing the garbage bags on the night that Jennifer disappeared, which was later found to contain Jenny's blood-soaked clothes.
Before the wag warrant, the Fotis lawyer said the police had no real evidence.
The couple was in a bitter legal battle for custody of their children when Jennifer vanidhed.
She had written in court cases that she was afraid of her husband.
Fotis and Michelle had an affair before he and Jennifer decided to separate.
