Steven Porter, a 46-year-old White Rock man who is facing 20 charges involving controlled substances — 13 felonies and seven misdemeanors — is back in jail after violating terms of his release, according to LAPD commander Jason Wardlow-Herrera Tuesday.
Wardlow-Herrera said Porter tampered with his electronic monitoring device. Porter made his first court appearance before Magistrate Judge Pat Casados Tuesday and was given a strict set or orders for his release.
Bond was posted last Tuesday and Porter was released last Wednesday. His next court appearance is scheduled for Sept. 2.
