Jonathan Nelson is behind bars, accused of violating the terms of his probation. Law enforcement arrested Nelson in Abilene Monday afternoon. He was booked into the Taylor County Jail around 4:00 p.m.
Nelson received permission from the court to go to Abilene on July 18th. Judge Sam Cummings granted that request. Nelson had one day, yesterday, July 31st, to meet with his attorneys and the Securities and Exchange Commission. The details of Nelson's arrest are not being released. We're told the matter is being handled by Nelson's probation officer and the judge, and that the incident is not a matter of public record.
We do know that terms of Nelson's release place him under home detention. His travel is restricted, and he cannot hold a passport. Also, Nelson cannot open any lines of credit with out approval from the court, and he cannot drink alcohol, or carry a gun.
The agreement states that violating any of the terms can result in a warrant for arrest and revoking the release agreement. Nelson could also face a contempt of court charge with prison time, a fine, or both. We're told Nelson's sentencing has not been scheduled, but now he could remain in jail until that is finished.
