SYCAMORE – A man accused of violating an order of protection against his wife five times since March will remain in jail unless he can post a $100,000 bond.

Glenn Ouellette, whose address is listed in court records as a Sycamore hotel, has been held on $500,000 bail after the most recent allegations surfaced Sept. 24. As DeKalb police were investigating allegations he called his estranged wife, they found recordings on his phone in which he fantasized about killing her, court records show.

Ouellette’s public defender, Charles Criswell, and prosecutors agreed to double his bail Thursday to $1 million, which would require posting a 10 percent bond to be released while the case is pending. Criswell said Ouellette couldn’t post the lower amount.

Judges previously reduced Ouellette’s bail to an amount he could post and he was released on electronic home monitoring three times after allegedly violating the order of protection, court records show. He’s accused of going near his wife’s home, work and calling her.

After he was charged three times with violating the order of protection, Presiding Judge Robbin Stuckert required Ouellette to participate in electronic monitoring, court records show. The next day, Ouellette went into prohibited areas seven times between 9:30 and 11:45 a.m. April 10, court records show. He told police he was hoping to catch a glimpse of her.

He was charged with aggravated stalking, a felony, but his bond was reduced April 16 to allow him to attend in-patient alcohol treatment in Aurora, court records show.
