Can my bond be revoked if I pick up new charges?
Yes, your bond can be revoked or modified to add conditions like GPS monitoring, random drug and alcohol testing, a curfew or an increased bond amount, if you are charged with new crimes while out on bond. You do have the right to a hearing first.
In order to revoke your bond, the State prosecutor (also known as the D.A. or District Attorney) must file a written Motion to Alter, Amend or Revoke Bond with the court and serve you with a copy.
You must be given at least 10 days advance notice of the hearing date so that you and your attorney have time to prepare.
The State must present evidence of the new charge and you have the right to have an attorney present to defend you, challenge the State’s evidence and present evidence on your behalf.
