A DC Superior Court judge did not issue a bench warrant for a defendant who failed to appear for his July 29 hearing.
The domestic violence defendant is charged with attempted threats to do bodily harm.
He was summoned to court to address his issues complying with the terms of his pretrial release.
A Pretrial Services Agency (PSA) representative said the defendant’s GPS monitoring device expired between June 9 to July 14, July 18 to July 24, and July 27 to July 28 and that he failed to charge it.
The prosecution asked for a bench warrant, saying he may pose a threat to the victim.
Defense attorney Sharon Weathers said her client did not violate any other release conditions, including his stay away order during the periods when the PSA lost track of him.
Judge John McCabe scheduled another hearing for Aug. 19.
