Smithson issued $50,000 bail order

Jeb Floyd Smithson appeared at the Madison County Courthouse on March 26 for a bond hearing. Smithson is charged with failing to register as a violent offender, theft and obstructing a peace officer. 

Smithson was previously released on a $20,000 bond, before being arrested for failing to meet conditions of his bail. Judge Luke Berger followed the recommendation of the state with a $50,000 bond issued, GPS monitoring and continued drug testing. Judge Berger said he would be willing to adapt the order if the state and Smithson’s lawyer could figure out an alternative plan that included a treatment center. “I can see you want to get treatment, but I don’t think you have a handle on this for you to be out on your own,” said Berger. “I think you’re getting to the motivated stage.”
