The bond agreement for Albany Municipal Court Judge Willie Weaver has been modified, so that he can live with his wife again.

Weaver was arrested and charged with aggravated assault in May, after Investigators say he hit his wife Vester in the face with a beer bottle at a party. Part of his bond agreement required Weaver to have no contact with his wife. But Friday Judge Richard Porter modified Weaver's bond, eliminating that no contact condition, so he could live with his wife and children.

Weaver's Attorney Johnnie Graham said  "Keeping the family together I think outweighs in the Judge's mind, and in the mind of the prosecutor and us the notion that there could be further problems."

Graham said as far as she knows, Weaver has moved back in with his family.

Weaver's attorneys have also filed a motion to dismiss the arrest warrant, and to reconsider the recusal of all Dougherty County Superior Court Judges in his case. Those motions have not been ruled on.
