If the judge is aware of this then his attorney should have objected to the warrant and got the judge to not issue the warrant. At this point, you really should consider getting him another attorney to represent him and go to court to get the warrant recalled based on him being in the program and providing proof to the court of the program. The key more than anything is the bond, not the warrant because the judge is right, chances are nothing will happen unless he is in CO, but if the judge revoked the bond, then you have a problem. The judge could have issued the warrant without revoking the bond and you need to check that as well through his attorney. If the bond was not revoked then the warrant was more of an insurance
that he would surrender to the court when the program he is in was completed.
