Leon Houston pleaded with Special Judge David Hayes not to send him back to jail.
“I’m asking for mercy from the court,” he said.
Hayes wasn’t moved to grant it. He ordered Houston back to jail on Thursday for violating conditions of his bail.
“I love you,” Houston said to his sister, Debbie Cofer, before he was taken back to a holding cell.
Houston and his younger brother, Rocky, were released from jail in March.
