Upshur County DA files motion to revoke bond for former commissioner
Upshur County (Longview News-Journal) — Upshur County District Attorney Billy Byrd filed a motion this morning to revoke the bond of former county commissioner Lloyd Crabtree on grounds that Crabtree failed to meet the requirements of his release from jail on bond – one of which was to surrender all weapons and ammunition to the Department of Public Safety.
“We believe he did not comply fully with the bond conditions,” Byrd said. “He surrendered some weapons and no ammunition.”
Crabtree surrendered two firearms, Byrd said.
Byrd said his motion requested an immediate hearing in the 115th District Court to determine if Crabtree complied with his bond conditions.
“We believe we can prove he has not complied,” Byrd said. There has not been an arrest warrant issued for Crabtree’s arrest.
“If the judge decides he did not comply, the court can revoke his bond and put him back in jail or increase his bond – there are several options,” Byrd said. “Nothing will occur until the state brings proof and evidence of those things.”
