Both Junta and Molle were charged with Home Invasion, Armed Robbery, Assault & Battery with a Dangerous Weapon, and Conspiracy.

According to the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office, Junta and Molle allegedly broke their way into the Reading apartment and forced a man to undress and then lie on the floor; and then they allegedly beat and robbed him.

Both Quinlan Junta and Jason Molle were held without bail pending a Dangerousness Hearing, which is scheduled for later this week in Woburn District Court. In order to detain a defendant, without bail and pending the outcome of the criminal case, a hearing is held for a Judge to decide whether ‘no conditions of release will reasonably assure the safety of any other person or the community.’

If the name ‘Junta’ sounds familiar, Quinlan Junta is the son of Thomas Junta who, was convicted of the deadly beating of another man at their sons’ hockey practice in 2000. Thomas Junta was convicted of Manslaughter and served 8 years in state prison – he was released this past August.
