Motion to Revoke Bond in Criminal Cases

In criminal cases a bond is an amount set by the court to allow a person to remain at liberty while their case is pending.  There are several standard conditions of bond such as do not use illegal drugs and do not violate the law.   The Court can set other conditions of pre-trial release such as curfew, day reporting and drug testing.


As Adrian Peterson found out, a person released on bond who fails a required drug test, is subject to having their bond revoked. Mr. Peterson is set to have a hearing to determine whether his bond should be revoked.   According to the article I read, Peterson admitted that he had "smoked a little weed" while out on bond. 


A bond is a contract between the accused and the court.  If a defendant has a bail bond agent then the bail bondsman becomes a party to the contract.  In Florida, a Judge can revoke the bond at any time for a breach of the bond contract such as ingesting drugs or committing new offenses while out on bond.


A person released on bond or other pre-trial release conditions can seek to modify the bond.  Normally, a hearing and the accused's presence in court is required.
