  • My brother was arrested for assault, released on PR Bond. He was arrested again for a PI. Will he get thrown back in jail?

    he was released on PR bond on Monday and rearrested for public intoxication. I am not sure if there are stipulations to his PR Bond.

    Rogelio’s Answer

    Most Judges like to have their defendant's that they agree to release on a PR bond to be on their best behavior. Consequently, if your brother was then arrested for a different charge he is most likely to get his PR bond revoked its not automatic but its discretionary.
