Michael Bremont, 39, is now accused of sexually abusing a 17-year-old student during his time at Central Linn, between December 2005 and March 2006.
Oregon State Police criminal investigation division detectives arrested Bremont on Thursday morning on one count of second-degree sex abuse. Bremont was under house arrest at the home of a relative in West Linn at the time awaiting court dates for his charges in Deschutes County. He has been transported to the Linn County Jail.
Anyone with information related to the new investigation is asked to contact OSP detectives at 503-934-0355.
Bremont served as Central Linn High School principal from 2002 to 2007, then took a job with the Redmond School District. He founded Redmond Proficiency Academy in 2009 and became principal there.
Bremont was arrested Feb. 18 on charges he’d had sexual contact with a 15-year-old Redmond student. He posted bail and left the area without authorization, and was re-arrested in Albany on Feb. 23.
Bremont was arraigned April 30 on a 14-count indictment, up from 11 initial charges, and was released to live with the family members in West Linn. On Monday, he pleaded not guilty to all 14 charges. A trial has been scheduled for Jan. 8, 2013.
