A HOLD-UP with a court document means the man who committed an ATM robbery armed with a machete will spend the weekend in prison.
Jayden Robert Follington was due to have his application for bail heard in Tamworth District Court on Thursday.
He appeared in court via visual link from Shortland Correctional Centre.
Defence solicitor Wendy McAuliffe apologised, telling the court she was not in the position to make the bail application yet.
"The hold-up is a letter signed by Mr Follington, the document has been emailed through to Correctives," she said.
"I understand Your Honour has other commitments so when it suits Your Honour."
The court heard a bed had become available for Follington at rehabilitation service Balund-a.
Judge Jeffery McLennan said there was little issue with the delay given he could not be given a release date for the program before October 11.
"That seems to take the pressure off a bit, as it happens the trial I am doing will have a later start than usual on Monday," he said.
"I understand that application is still being opposed, is that still the case?," Judge McLennan asked the DPP solicitor Cat McKay.
"Yes, Your Honour," she said.
Follington has pleaded guilty to robbery armed with an offensive weapon, after he threatened a man at the Robert Street ATM in Tamworth on February 12.
Judge McLennan told Follington he would have to wait a few more days for his bail application to be dealt with.
The matter will return to court on Monday morning.
