Sheriff Darren Campbell stated: On August 2, 2015 Deputy Carron Griffiths was working road patrol and received information that James Herbert Scott was in violation of his pretrial release conditions.
Scott had been charged and arrested in January of 2015 for Assault on a Female and was given a court date of August 3, 2015. Scott was placed under pretrial release conditions and was given orders by a judge that he was to have no contact with the victim he assaulted, or to be at the house in which the victim is staying.
Deputy Griffiths investigated the matter and was able to locate James Scott at the residence where the victim was residing, which was in violation of his pretrial release conditions. At that time, Deputy Griffiths placed Scott into custody and took him back before a Magistrate where his bond was revoked for the previous charge of Assault on a Female. Scott’s bond was increased from $1000.00 to $10,000.00. He was placed in the Iredell County Detention Center.
