A Mississippi doctor has been arrested while out on bond for drug charges. Dr. David Allen had posted $100,000 bond after being arrested for cultivation of marijuana, sale of a controlled substance, and possession of a firearm. While out, he was arrested again for witness tampering and bribery. The judge in his case revoked the doctor’s bond.
If you are arrested in Jacksonville, you are entitled to go in front of a judge within 24 hours to address your bond. The judge can release you on your own recognizance, set a reasonable bond, or hold you on no bond if statutory requirements are met. If you bond out of jail or are released (ROR), you have to be on your best behavior. If you are arrested on new charges while on bond, the judge handling your case can revoke your bond and you will be held in jail until the disposition of your case. Normally, the prosecutor will file a motion to revoke your bond your Jacksonville criminal defense lawyer can argue against it. If the judge finds that the new arrest is supported by probable cause, he or she can put you back in jail.
