OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -- A federal judge has revoked the bond of a man charged in four north Mississippi bank robberies and ordered him to remain in custody until trial.
The order was signed following a motion hearing Monday in Oxford over the release of Brian Perry Jones, 35, of Toney, Alabama.
Jones pleaded not guilty last month to charges in the robberies of Renasant Bank branches in Booneville, Iuka, and Tupelo between August 16 and November 19, 2012.
The magistrate set a $10,000 bond, along with conditions Jones must meet as part of his release.
Prosecutors filed a motion to revoke bond claiming Jones is a danger to the community and the bond was not a guarantee he would show up for trial.
Jones' attorney filed a response saying his client has abided by the court orders in the release and is not a threat to run because of family ties he has to north Alabama.
In the order Monday, a federal judge said while Jones had followed the bond stipulations, he has a past incident of commiting a crime while on supervision for another charge.
He says combined with the fact bank robbery is a violent crime whether a gun is used or not, Jones will remain in federal custody until his trial.
