GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - KYTX CBS 19 has learned through the detention hearing Monday for Canton Police Officer James Bradshaw that he is getting counseling for an addiction to the painkiller hydrocodone. He is also taking medications to help him with his withdrawal from the drug.

32-year-old James Bradshaw, who has been with the Canton Police Department since 2005, was arrested for federal drug violations in the Eastern District of Texas, Thursday, March 28, 2013. Bradshaw is accused of using his position as a police officer to get hydrocodone pills from people with the prescription.

After Monday's hearing, U.S. Judge Judith Guthrie released Bradshaw from custody of the Gregg County Jail.

Lt. Keith Bradshaw, Mabank police officer and James Bradshaw's brother, will serve as third party custodian in which he will be responsible for making sure his brother does not break any of the conditions under his release.

Bradshaw is under a $5,000 unsecured bond of which he must attend mandatory pretrial meetings, avoid contact with witnesses involved in his case, and he is required to continue medical and psychiatric treatments for hydrocodone substance abuse and depression issues. Bradshaw is ordered to not use alcohol or narcotics other than what has been prescribed to him as well as he must submit to urine testing. If any of the conditions are broken he will be arrested.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Alan Jackson tells CBS 19 that he is surprised at the judge's decision but can live with the strict conditions Bradshaw has been placed under.

During the hearing, details were released about the six times Bradshaw is accused of acquiring hydrocodone, and at times Xanax from those prescribed, in a fraudulent way.

Bradshaw's attorney Buck Files wouldn't comment because the case is still pending.

Bradshaw's brother, father, and cousin were all present at the hearing and also chose not to comment.

The trial is scheduled for May 7.
