Judge Grants Warrant For Memon’s Arrest
A Madison County Circuit Judge has granted the State of Alabama’s request to revoke Hammad Memon’s bond, saying he applied for a Pakistani passport and may have been trying to leave the country.
Memon is the teen charged with murder in connection with the February 5, 2010 shooting death of Discovery Middle School student Todd Brown.
According to court documents filed Friday, prosecutors allege that Memon received an Express Mail package from the Embassy of Pakistan containing a passport. Memon has dual citizenship, and is considered an extreme flight risk. A condition of Memon’s bond is that he surrender his passport and not be allowed to leave the United States.
As a result, the State of Alabama filed to have Memon’s bond revoked. Friday, Judge Karen Hall granted the motion, and issued a warrant for Memon’s arrest.
