Judge Revokes Hammad Memon’s Bond
Hammad Memon will stay in the Madison County Detention Center until his trial in June. Late Thursday morning, a judge revoked his bond.
Circuit Judge Karen Hall revoked Memon’s bond after a short hearing. Memon was caught Friday in Dallas, Texas, with his mother. It’s believed he was trying to leave the country.
Memon’s lawyer, Bruce Gardner, indicated he would file a motion in the coming days to try to get the trial delayed. It is currently scheduled to start in June.
Law enforcement officials walked Memon into the Madison County Detention Center just after 9 p.m. Wednesday, after bringing him back from Dallas, Texas.
Memon, 16, is charged as an adult in the murder of classmate Todd Brown at Discovery Middle School in 2010.
Memon was out on bond, living at his family’s home in Madison. Last Friday, April 13, prosecutors asked a judge to revoke Memon’s bond because he had apparently requested a Pakistani passport.
The Memon family has dual citizenship in the United States and Pakistan.
Memon was out on $75,000 bond that had previously been set by Madison County District Judge Lynn Sherrod. Prosecutors say Memon’s parents were trying to help him leave the country.
