(1) order that he be released on a recognizance, unconditional or with reasonable conditions, with ou without sureties, to appear at the inquest and testify; or
(2) order that he be detained in a correctional facility for a period of not over eight days or, if he is under 18 years of age, that he be confided to the care of the director of youth protection designated by the judge or the coroner for the same period.
If the judge or the coroner, as the case may be, has reasonable and probable grounds to believe that a person has not complied with the conditions of his release, or has escaped or is about to do so, he may issue a new warrant for his arrest. Any person so arrested is treated in accordance with the first paragraph.
Any decision taken pursuant to the first paragraph may, upon an application, be revised by a justice of the Superior Court.
