If bail was revoked by the judge for non-fta does the bail still have to be paid?

Friend was out on bond for something he hasn’t been indicted for yet. He was arrested again for something he did not do. But it was a violation of bond to be arrested again. So he’s back in jail. Although he has not been officially charged for anything. He has to be sit in tail until trial. Whenever that will be.

If the bond has been revoked by the judge, then then the bond is done, and no amount is due--except as required by the contract between the defendant and the bond company.  Most bondsmen will "go off" the bond once a defendant is put back in jail.  This has the advantage of reducing costs for the defendant while allowing them to accrue jail time for both cases.
If your friend intends on posting bond for the new charge, then he needs to ask his bondsman to stay on the bond and post a new bond for the new charge.
