A judge let him out on bond, according to Channel 2 Action News.
While on bond, Nesbitt did not appear for a September 2016 plea and arraignment hearing, the district attorney’s office said. The U.S. fugitive task force apprehended Nesbitt later that month.
He was released from the Fulton jail in December, online records show. It is not clear why.
At a news conference Friday, District Attorney Paul Howard urged anyone with knowledge of Nesbitt’s whereabouts to call 404-613-3230.
A warrant is active for Nesbitt’s arrest.
