My question involves criminal law for the state of: Illinois
Ok so last year my brother was arrest on a burglary charge but he was on parole at that time. We bonded him out ($20,000) and he was rearrested a few days later on the charge on parole violation. he sat in jail for a month or so before they transferred him back to prison to serve out the rest of his sentence for violating parole. mind you that while he is sitting in jail and prison he his still going to court fighting the burglery charge. just a few days ago he was set to be released from prison. upon release he was rearrested again on that exact same burglary charge with a bond set even higher ($75,000) than before.
My question is can he be charged again for the same crime he was already fighting?(he didnt actually commit the crime a second time as he was in prison and instead of releasing him they transferred him back to the county jail)
Is there a way we can get the original bond money back?? (we took out a loan to get it)
someone please help, this whole situation is just confusing and frustrating, he tells me even the judge is confused and doesnt know exactly what is goin on in this case
