A Hamilton County Criminal Court judge Monday revoked Johnthony Walker's bond in his criminal vehicular homicide case in Chattanooga.

Walker, 25, was sentenced to four years in prison in April in connection with the 2016 crash on Talley Road that killed six Woodmore Elementary School children and injured several others. Judge Don Poole allowed Walker to stay out on bond while he appealed that sentence.

But last month, Walker admitted to Nashville police that he'd had consensual sex with a 14-year-old girl a few times while staying in that city, according to a criminal affidavit. He was arrested and charged with aggravated statutory rape, given a $350,000 bond and is being held in Davidson County.

After that arrest, Hamilton County prosecutors filed a motion to revoke bond in his Chattanooga cases. Prosecutors often ask to revoke a bond when a person is accused of new criminal behavior or violates their probation in some way.

Walker's defense attorney in the Chattanooga case, Amanda Dunn, said Walker had voluntarily agreed to surrender his bond.

"This is the state's motion," Poole said Monday. "It does appear to be appropriate."

Walker next appears in court July 20 in Davidson County's General Sessions Court before Judge Allegra Walker.
