A hit-and-run suspect's release, without having to pay bail up front, was the source of community outrage Monday-- but his freedom was short-lived. 

Brandon Cockburn, 39, is back in custody, but not because of the crash that left another Anchorage man with serious injuries. 

Tyler Hughes, 28, will be spending his summer in a wheelchair with several broken bones after his motorcycle collided with Cockburn's van on June 20.

According to court documents, Cockburn admitted to running a red light at 6th Avenue and Cordova, hitting Hughes and driving away. 

He was arraigned on charges of assault and leaving the scene of an accident with injuries, then released on GPS monitoring and supervision by the Pretrial Enforcement Division, and a $2,500 unsecured bond, which didn't require him to pay any money in order to be released. 

At the time of the hit and run, Cockburn had another open case. A grand jury indicted him weeks ago on nine felony child pornography counts, and despite several summons attempts, Cockburn had not been to court to be arraigned on those charges. 

According to the indictment, Cockburn is accused of possessing and distributing video files depicting the lewd exhibition of children's genitals, masturbation, and sexual penetration. 

Monday, when he did show up for his arraignment in the initial case, Judge Michael Corey set bail at $20,000 cash for the child pornography case. 

Cockburn was handcuffed in the courtroom and taken back into custody.  

GoFundMe page has been created to help Hughes with his medical expenses, as he says Cockburn did not have insurance.
