Judge Issues Bench Warrant for Defendant

A DC Superior Court judge issued a bench warrant for a defendant who did not show up to his Aug. 6 hearing and is a loss of contact with the Pretrial Services Agency (PSA.)

Travon Lewis, 26, is charged with possession of a prohibited weapon, threats to do bodily harm and possession of a controlled substance after allegedly threatening to stab a victim at a metro kiosk on June 16 on the 600 block of 1st Street, NE.

Lewis was released on June 17 and ordered to report to the PSA. He was later ordered to appear in court on Aug. 6 to address his lack of compliance with his release conditions.

During the hearing, a PSA representative reported that Lewis was still a loss of contact, so Judge Gerald Fisher issued a warrant for the defendant’s arrest.
