Los Alamos Urologist Pavel Mourachov was arrested and placed in the local jail again Tuesday for an alleged electronic monitoring device violation.

He’s now been ordred by the court to get out of town by Monday.

Mourachov was arrested last month and charged with two counts of aggravated assault against a household member with a deadly weapon, harassment and extreme cruelty to animals. He was released six days later, at which time Magistrate Court Judge Pat Casados ordered him to wear a monitoring bracelet. He was awaiting a July 11 court hearing on the charges when he apparently violated that order, which caused his arrest Tuesday.

Assistant District Attorney Kent Wahlquist told the Los Alamos Daily Post that a plea agreement was reached in the case Thursday. The judge ordered Mourachov to continue to wear his monitoring bracelet and as part of the agreement, sentenced him to time served and put him on 18 months of tightly supervised probation. She also ordered him to go home and pack up his belongings and leave Los Alamos by Monday, July 1.

Wahlquist said that in the end, justice was best served.

“I feel it’s the best available option to both protect the community from him and also for him to pick up the pieces of his life and to address the cause of his issues,” Wahlquist said.

When asked where Mourachov is planning to live, Wahlquist said he has family in Boston.
