Bond Revocation Hearing for Cody Psychiatrist
Written by Andrew-Rossi on July 14, 2017
A former psychiatrist in Cody made an appearance in court this week – this time for a hearing to consider revoking the bond that was in place on aggravated assault charges for a vehicle crash that occurred this spring.
Leta Pojman with the Park County Attorney’s Office says that Matt Hopkins is currently under court ordered restrictions that require him to abstain from alcohol completely. She says that Hopkins is on probation in Circuit Court from an incident in November for which he plead guilty to failing to have insurance in a hit and run case; and is under bond restrictions out of District Court for a vehicle crash that occurred in May, in which he is accused of inhaling intoxicating vapors, passing out and crashing into an oncoming vehicle.
Pojman says that Hopkins was recently involved in a bike crash – a concerned citizen called authorities because of the severity of the crash. When officers arrived, Hopkins was subject to a breathalyzer, and it was determined that he had been drinking alcohol, in violation of both his bond conditions and his probation.
Hopkins appeared in District Court on Wednesday for a bond revocation hearing. If an upcoming evidentiary hearing proves that he did indeed violate his court orders, then the $50,000 cash only bond will be invoked.
His trial for the May crash is currently set for mid-October.
