A Madison County Circuit Judge has granted the State of Alabama’s request to revoke Hammad Memon’s bond, saying he applied for a Pakistani passport and may have been trying to leave the country.

Memon 14,  is charged with murder in connection with the February 5, 2010 shooting death of Discovery Middle School student Todd Brown. Memon was also a student at Discovery Middle School at the time of the shooting.

According to court documents filed Friday, prosecutors say that Memon received an  package from the Embassy of Pakistan containing a new passport.  Memon has does have dual citizenship, and is considered an extreme flight risk.  A condition of Memon’s bond is that he was to  surrender his passport and not be allowed to leave the United States.

As a result, the State of Alabama has filed to have Memon’s bond revoked.  Friday, Judge Karen Hall  has granted the motion, and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
