I am always disappointed when one of my clients gets their bond revoked
and put back in jail. Typically, the client and/or their family has spent
a significant amount of money to bond them out of jail. While we mention
all the pitfalls of being on bond some people do not seem to believe us.
For example, if you are ordered to put an interlock device on your vehicle after a
DWI arrest in Houston the judge will revoke your bond and put you in jail for failing to do so.
If you are bond for a
drug case do not be surprised when the judge orders you to get a drug test after
being on bond a few months. If you test positive or forget to get the
test your bond will be revoked and you will placed in jail. Another common
way that someone gets their bond revoked is after being ordered not to
have contact with a specific person the person on bond telephones that
person. All these things are likely to lead to your bond revoked by the
judge. Moreover, these actions could be used against you if there is a
punishment phase to your case.
