    Judge sets $5m bail for rearrested sex offender

    Judge sets bail at $5 million

    A Level 3 sex offender from Uxbridge, who won a $10 million state lottery jackpot, pleaded not guilty Monday to charges that he repeatedly sexually assaulted a child over a four-year period.

    Daniel T. Snay is charged with indecent assault and battery on a child under 14, enticing a child under 16, reckless endangerment of a child, and disseminating obscene material to a minor, according to the office of Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. An Uxbridge District Court judge set bail at $5 million cash.

    Snay, 62, was arrested by Uxbridge police and is under investigation by police in Connecticut and Rhode Island for allegedly committing unspecified crimes in those states, Uxbridge Police Chief Jeffrey A. Lourie said in a statement over the weekend.


    The Uxbridge charges cover a four-year period that began in 2008 and ended in 2012, according to police and prosecutors. Lourie said in the statement that Snay’s lottery winnings played a role in his alleged crimes, but further details were not immediately released.

    According to the state Sex Offender Registry Board, Snay lives on Elmwood Avenue in Uxbridge and works in Mendon. He was convicted of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14 years of age in 1974 and of the same charge in 1976.
