Police Commissioner’s Bail Revoked

The former police commissioner, Bernard Kerik, is now back in jail because a judge revoked his bond. Kerik originally bonded out with a $500,000 bail, but the judge said he violated a court order by talking about his case.

If you are out on bond in Jacksonville, the judge can revoke your bond if you are arrested for a new crime in Jacksonville and that crime is supported by probable cause. A judge can also revoke your bond if you violate the terms of the bond. For example, if you have been arrested for domestic battery in Jacksonville and part of your bond will probably be to have no contact with the victim. If a judge thinks that you had any kind of contact, he or she can revoke your bond and put you back in jail. Before your bond is revoked, you are entitled to a hearing and a Jacksonville Bond Attorney can argue on your behalf.
