Report: Prosecutors want Cowboys' Josh Brent's bond revoked
Dallas prosecutors are asking that Josh Brent's $100,000 bond be revoked after the Cowboys defensive tackle tested positive for marijuana.
Brent is currently free while he awaits trial on intoxication manslaughter charges stemming from a Dec. 8 car crash that killed teammate Jerry Brown. On the night of the crash, Brent was driving his vehicle with a blood-alcohol level that was more than twice the legal limit.
The request by prosecutors marks the second time in less than two weeks that the prosecution has asked the judge to raise or revoke Brent's $100,000 bond. In a May 24 court hearing, prosecutors said Brent violated the terms of his release by setting off an alcohol-monitoring device and failing to download data from it as required.
During that hearing, Judge Robert Burns did not raise or revoke Brent's bond, but he did order the Cowboys defensive tackle to take a drug test, a drug test that Brent failed. Burns also ordered a second form of alcohol monitoring in the form of breath samples.
"Given the defendant's prior alcohol-related contacts and the severity of the charge in this case, it is the State's belief that the defendant continues to pose a threat to the community," prosecutors said in the motion.
If convicted of the intoxication manslaughter charge, Brent faces up to 20 years in prison.
