If I'm out on bail and the DA adds a charge to my existing charges will I be arrested at my next court appearance in CA?

Asked on Saturday, Feb 09, 2013

Will they take me to jail if another new charge is added to existing charges that I'm already out on bail for?

They might. But, they would have to show changed circumstances. The new charge wouldn't really qualify unless its consideerably more serious. (e.g. you were arrested for petty theft and then charged with murder)

Not likely. They would have to show a substantial change in circumstances to do so. You should hire an attorney if you haven't already done so.
