What will happen at a PR Bond Hearing?

My son was locked up for a breach of peace charge. He got released on a PR bond. Then he got arrested the following week for shoplifting. What do you think is going to happen at his hearing?

    The PR bond, which was a gift from the judge, will likely be revoked and a larger bond set. Any offense committed while on a PR bond looks very bad and you should speak with an experienced defense attorney in your area to figure out the best way forward.

    A person being released on personal recognizance without surety might have his bail revoked if arrested for subsequent criminal activity if he received a bail warning from the court. The Judge will review the order to recognize, the facts of the new charge, and consider the prosecutor's request for bail on the new charge or any request to revoke the personal recognizance on the pending case. Consult with an attorney who can advise you.

    The judge could revoke the PR bond and set bail.

    This is likely a bond violation, committing a new crime. If so, his bond can be revoked and he will have to post bond. Sometimes, lower level charges like shoplifting are not noticed in higher level courts (felony). But, I would expect that his bond will be revoked and he will have to post a bond to be released.

    It is unlikely he will see any more jail time than what he may have already served. However, he hurt himself with any plea offer that may come forth from the prosecutor. He can expect a large fine and lots of community service hours. He blew his chance of having the Breach of Peace thrown out.
