It was the first of three felony cases in which Bakke has been charged. The two other cases, each separate incidents, go to jury trial Feb. 4-5.

Bakke, who turned 18 this week, was charged with the bail jumping after violating his bond by shouting a profanity at one of the family members involved in the burglary case.

Pierce County Circuit Court Judge Robert Wing said during his ruling on the bail jumping that there was enough reasonable doubt established for an acquittal.
