    Answered . In that your boyfriend already has legal counsel, it makes sense to talk to that particular attorney. Bond revocations aren't always straightforward matters.

    A LOT depends on whether the COURT has revoked the Bond or whether the Bonding Agent has chosen to surrender someone.

    Of course, the type of original charge and new charge(s) can make a substantial difference too.

    Answered . It sounds like your boyfriend is in jail for a fugitive warrant from Georgia. If he is in jail in Raleigh, North Carolina. He may benefit from having a lawyer in each of the two states. It is possible to have a bond set on a Fugitive case, but this is one of the rare charges for which the court is not required to set a bond. Even if a bond has been raised or struck altogether, there is no rule preventing another one from being set.

    It's not clear to me from your question where your boyfriend has a lawyer. If his lawyer is in North Carolina, you should direct you questions there. If the lawyer is in Georgia and he is not represented in North Carolina, we may be able to help with the Raleigh portion of the case. Please feel free to give us a call.

    Answered . I agree with Seth. It sounds like your boyfriend is detained on a fugitive warrant from GA. It is important he consult with an attorney in GA and NC to determine the best course of action. Whether or not he fights extradition may have a bearing on how long he's held in NC. Again, he needs lawyers in NC and GA.
