A 34-year-old man who at one time was accused of attempted murder for allegedly trying to run over several Kaua’i Police Department officers, is back before a judge.
Chad Fabian Bond recently denied violating conditions of his probation based on those charges, before Fifth Circuit Court Chief Judge George Masuoka.
Bond pleaded no contest in 2001 to threatening two KPD officers, along with causing an accident that resulted in injuries.
Bond was picked up in Waipahu on O’ahu last week, and brought before Masuoka. Bond, through Deputy Public Defender John Calma, denied that he violated the terms and conditions of his five-year probation.
A hearing on a motion to revoke or modify Bond’s probation is set for Thursday, Jan. 12.
According to court records, Bond is accused of not going to three meetings with his probation officer, and that he was late for another one.
Bond is also accused of not notifying his probation officer of a change in address, and he is accused of being discharged from a drug-treatment program due to excess absences.
According to court records, Bond has a Wailua mailing address.
Also according to court records, Bond is accused of not paying probation-services fees, and he is accused of not paying the balance of fees that were converted from community-service hours.
Bond was indicted by a Kaua’i grand jury in 2000 of three counts of first-degree attempted murder, three counts of first-degree terroristic threatening, five counts of second-degree reckless endangering, and of one count of first-degree criminal property damage.
He was also charged with racing on the highway, fraudulent use of a license plate, driving without a license, resisting an order to stop, reckless driving, and with causing an accident resulting in injuries.
Additionally, he was charged with third-degree promotion of a dangerous drug, possession of drug paraphernalia, and with second-degree attempted escape.
According to the nine-page indictment, on Oct. 29, 2000, Bond attempted to murder KPD officers Richard Rosa and Kenneth Cummings by driving his vehicle at the officers at a high rate of speed. He also attempted to murder KPD officer Dean Martin by driving a vehicle into another vehicle, and thereby pushing the second vehicle in the direction of Martin, the indictment indicates.
He was further charged with causing an accident that resulted in injuries to Evelyn Korodi, and he was charged with attempting to escape from custody by breaking the handcuffs used to restrain him, according to the indictment.
In March 2001, he pleaded no contest to two counts of first-degree terroristic threatening, second-degree, criminal-property damage, and to two counts of second-degree reckless endangering.
He also pleaded no contest to resisting an order to stop, reckless driving, and to causing an accident resulting in injuries.
At Bond’s sentencing hearing in May 2001, he was placed on five years probation, with conditions attached to his probation, for pleading no contest to the terroristic threatening counts, and to the second-degree, criminal-property-damage count.
He was sent to prison for one year, with credit given for time already served for the reckless-endangering counts, resisting an order to stop, and for causing the accident.
Additionally, he was sentenced to 30 days in prison, with credit given for time already served, for pleading no contest to the reckless driving count.
Bond was also ordered to pay $1,392.95 in restitution to Korodi.
The periods of confinement ran concurrently, and all the other counts were dropped, according to court records.
