I think with a breach of home detention, he is most unlikely to get bail until sentencing. Home detention is the last step before jail, so cutting off the bracelet is treated seriously, and jail is inevitable. The time he spends on remand will be taken into account for his jail sentence, and even with good reports on his social and addition issues, he will be jailed. If jail is inevitable bail will not be granted. Removing the bracelet is also a specific factor in considering bail , so will be held against him.
