A D.C. Superior Court judge on Wednesday denied a gun rights activist’s request to be released from jail into a high-supervision program as he awaits trial on a weapons charge, officials said.

Judge Patricia A. Broderick wrote in an order that Adam Kokesh, 31, would remain in the D.C. jail, citing a violation of bond on a prior arrest weeks before authorities arrested him on a charge of carrying a firearm in the District outside of his home or office.

Kokesh, 31, has been jailed since his July 25 arrest, after he posted a 23-second video on YouTube of himself apparently loading a shotgun in Freedom Plaza on July 4.

He requested a change in his no-bond status during a hearing Aug 13.

In her ruling, Broderick also cited that Kokesh had no verifiable employment and authorities found several weapons and illegal drugs inside his Herndon home.
