Prosecutors in the Josh Brent manslaughter case sought to revoke his bond due to issue with alcohol monitoring, reports NFL.com. Seems the monitor he currently wears had been triggered a number of times while he's out on $100,000 bond. As a requirement, he has to wear the alcohol ankle monitor and appear for regular meetings with a county officer. Witnesses at Friday's hearing said he had repeatedly missed required times for his monitor to download information, as well as two appointments. Dallas County assistant district attorney Heath Harris even told the court that Brent had a whopping  22 violations in six months and purposely tried to "manipulate data" by not downloading information. "We expect for our repeat alcohol offenders to have strict compliance with their bond requirements. One of the problems we had was he was supposed to register data with us and didn't. And that was the real problem. He refuses to comply with the rules," Harris said. "Clearly, alcohol was present but we couldn't prove if he did drink or didn't." But even after all that damning testimony, the judge decided to reject the prosecutor's motion and instead give Brent an additional monitor, allowing him to remain free until his trial. The new device, the SoberLink, will wirelessly transmit BAC, GPS location and a photograph of the person blowing into device. Brent will still be rewuired to wear his first device, the SCRAM bracelet and transmit data from it daily, and provide a urine sample. The amount of leniency by Judge Robert Burns has some crying foul over special treament for a man who is clearly not adhering to his bond agreement. Brent's trial is scheduled for September, where he faces up 20 years in prison if convicted of intoxicated manslaughter.
