i was charged with a felony 5 and got a sor bond.. And didnt make it in time to check in so the revoked my bond and put a bench warrent out for my arrest..i dont go for sentencing till feb 10. Will they lock me up til my court date ?
Most likely yes unless you can post the new bond. The revocation of bond can also impact your sentence. A first time Felony 4 or Felony 5 non-violent non-sexual related offense has a presumption of community control under House Bill 86. This means that if this is your first felony the court should give you community control/probation unless they make some additional findings. One of the things that ends the presumption and permits the court to send you to prison is a revocation of bond. I suggest you talk to an experienced criminal defense attorney who can assist you.

If you are arrested on the warrant, you will be required to post some kind of bond. Since your previous bond was revoked, it could be quite high. This can also be an issue for sentencing. You should get an attorney to help get you turned in and negotiate a new bond for you and to address this issue at sentencing.
