DA announces bond revocation in domestic violence case

District Attorney Billy Joe Harrington announced the revocation of bond in a domestic violence case.

James Adams, 32 of Campti, was previously arrested in 2020 and 2021 on charges of two counts of domestic abuse battery, drug possession, and resisting a police officer.

Upon posting bond in the previous domestic violence charges, Adams was subject to a domestic violence protective order, which prohibited him from being in contact with the victim or be in the victim’s presence. Additionally, as a condition of the bond, Adams must refrain from criminal conduct.

On Oct. 6, Adams was arrested on two counts of resisting a police officer, domestic abuse battery, and violation of a protective order.

As a result of Adams’s recent arrest, the District Attorney’s Office filed a motion to revoke his pre-trial bond. A hearing was held in the 10th Judicial District Court, and after evidence was presented of the recent arrest, Judge Desiree Dyess revoked Adams’s bond and remanded him to the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center pending trial.
