    Answered . A bond won't be revoked unless you violate the conditions of release, or additional/more serious charges are brought.

    Answered . The first thing you need to do is hire an experienced criminal defense attorney in your area. Second, abide by all the terms of your bond conditions. A judge will not alter the bond without a motion to do so based on good grounds: you broke a bond condition, missed court, got a new arrest, etc. Get counsel to advise and direct you through the process.

    I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this... more

    Answered . When you have conditions over your head you need to make sure you understand exactly what they are. You ask, "Can a Judge revoke your bond...." The answer is yes if he/she believes that there is just cause. That is in his/her opinion not yours so don't get close to the line of what your conditions are!!!!! Get an experienced attorney now and talk over all of these things with him/her.
