BOISE -- A judge tightened restrictions on an indicted former Tamarack Resort suitor, to keep him from attempting to unload disputed assets to investors.

The new conditions of Matthew Hutcheson's release pending a trial, levied by U.S. Magistrate Judge Candy Dale on Friday, seek to safeguard a golf course loan prosecutors allege Hutcheson bought with money bilked from a retirement fund.

Prosecutors called for Friday's hearing after Hutcheson's father-in-law, Brad Mason, met with investors last week at Tamarack over the loan.

They say Mason's April 19 meeting violated release terms forbidding Hutcheson from raising investor cash.

In court, however, Mason insisted to Dale he informed investors the golf course loan was tied up in the courts.

Mason will remain Hutcheson's custodian, but Dale renewed her warnings against violating his son-in-law's release conditions.
