In the meantime, State Probation, Parole and Pardon charged him in a Violation of Probation warrant. Mr. Graddick is accused of changing his residence without notice or permission and of failing to immediately notify his agent of law enforcement contact. He’s also accused of testing positive for alcohol this past November, of failing to notify his agent after being served with Trespass notice by Clinton Public Safety on October 21, 2017. He is further accused of having contact with his victim and he’s accused of failing to make required payments. The probation warrant listed an address on Davidson Street, Clinton. During arraignment yesterday on the Violation of Probation warrant, a $75,000 bond was set for Jamie Eugene Graddick.
