What Happens If You Violate Bond Conditions In Kansas?

What Happens If You Violate Bond Conditions In Kansas?

If you violate bond conditions in Kansas, there can be several consequences, which may include…

  1. Revocation of Bond –  If you violate the conditions of your bond, the court may revoke your bond, meaning that you will be taken back into custody. This could happen if you fail to appear for a court hearing, fail to comply with the conditions of your release or commit a new offense while out on bond.
  2. Forfeiture of Bail –  If you posted bail to secure your release, you may forfeit the bail amount if you violate the bond conditions. This means that the court keeps the money you posted, and you will not get it back.
  3. New Charges – Depending on the nature of the violation, you could face new criminal charges. For example, if you were out on bond for one offense and you committed another offense while on bond, you could be charged with the new offense.
  4. Increased Bail Amount – If the court decides to grant you bond again after a violation, they may increase the amount of bail required or impose stricter conditions on your release.
  5. Additional Penalties – Violating bond conditions can result in additional penalties, such as fines, extended probation, or a longer sentence if you are convicted of the underlying offense.

Take bond conditions seriously and comply with all requirements to avoid these consequences. If you have concerns about your bond conditions or need to request a modification, you should consult with your attorney for guidance.
