I’ve already bonded out so why did I get arrested?

This blog by Newnan criminal defense attorney addressed the question of how there can be an arrest order or an arrest warrant for someone even though they have already bonded out on the charges.

We have dealt with this issue quite a bit, and as bad as it sucks it is not uncommon. It occurs when a person is arrested and taken to the jail and the judge gives them a bond. Then, later, the defendant is indicted by a grand jury and the prosecutors adds or enhances the charges.

How does this work? The answer is, prosecutors can add charges at the grand jury stage of proceedings that can require you to be rebooked, re fingerprinted, and potentially lead you to have to come up with a another bond.
