A Shreveport man convicted on numerous fraud charges and facing more counts, will remain jailed but with a lower bond until a hearing on new charges can be held early next year.

Caddo District Judge Katherine Dorroh denied a request by Caddo prosecutors to revoke the current $50,000 bond for Carlos Antonious Spann, 39, who has been convicted three times in recent years on charges of bank fraud, issuing hot checks and unauthorized use of an access card. Spann posted the bond set last week but remains jailed at Caddo Correctional Center on a hold from Tyler, Texas, and still must post approximately $120,000 additional bond based on the new felony charges.

Following recent arrest on 45 felony counts of creating fake payroll checks and identification cards to allow third parties to defraud local businesses, he had been granted the lower bond. Spann then was arrested upon the discovery of the new defraudings.

At Spann’s bond revocation hearing Wednesday, November 2, 2016, Dorroh declined to grant the motion to revoke the earlier lower bond, on the grounds she did not have the authority to revoke a bond that already been issued.

Dorroh ordered a bond hearing on the new pending charges to be held January 4, 2017. The more than two dozen new charges allege Spann provided false IDs to individuals who agreed to split the proceeds after the fraudulent checks were cashed. As many as 50 local businesses, usually mom-and-pop stores and community ventures, were victimized, often repeatedly, by these activities.

The Caddo Parish District Attorney’s office gave judicial notice it will take writs to the state Second Circuit Court of Appeal to seek an order that Spann’s bond be revoked or increased.

Spann was represented Wednesday by Kammi Whatley.
