At the bail revocation hearing, if the court finds that the defendant willfully violated a condition of release and the defendant is present before the court, the court may revoke the bail and remand the defendant to the custody of the sheriff. At any time thereafter, the court may reset bail in the same or a new amount and impose conditions of release. If the defendant fails to appear at the bail revocation hearing, the court shall issue a bench warrant for the defendant’s arrest.
(2)  In its order revoking bail, the court shall recite generally the facts upon which revocation of bail is founded and order that the defendant be recommitted to the custody of the sheriff of the county where the action is pending to be detained until legally released. The court may reset bail in the same or a new amount and impose any appropriate conditions of release.
(3)  The court may deny readmittance to bail if the court finds that the defendant has intimidated or harassed a victim, potential witness, juror or judicial officer or has committed one (1) or more violations of the conditions of release and such violation or violations constituted a threat to the integrity of the judicial system.
