pittsylvania-countyPITTSYLVANIA, Va. (AP) _ A Pittsylvania County suspect who was mistakenly released on bond is back in jail. Keith Edward Dean of Altavista was arrested on Oct. 20 on charges of object sexual penetration and attempted sexual assault. A Pittsylvania County magistrate released Dean on bond the next day. Prosecutors say the county commonwealth’s attorney’s office didn’t approve bond for Dean, and the magistrate didn’t hold a bond hearing. Pittsylvania County Commonwealth’s Attorney Bryan Haskins tells The Danville Register & Bee ( ) that Dean’s bond was revoked at a hearing on Monday. Dean is being held in the Pittsylvania County Jail.
