Greenhouse, Jr. is charged with the November 2015 murder of Jeremy Mardis, 6, and the attempted murder of his father, Chris Few. He is currently out on $1 million bond.
Judge Bennett ruled that bail will not be revoked, however, Greenhouse Jr. will have to serve seven days in jail for not giving notification for his recent Carribean trip.
Greenhouse Jr. will have to report to the Avoyelles Parish Sheriff's Office at 2 p.m. on Monday, September 11, to start the seven-day sentence.
Both parties were in favor of the judge's decision.
"He sentenced the defendant to seven days for what the judge called a bond violation and we're satisfied with the judge's ruling and how things came out today," said John Sinquefield, prosecutor with the Attorney General's Office.
"Candidly, Norris made a mistake by not reporting," said George Higgins, Greenhouse Jr.'s attorney. "He's followed each and every restriction on bond that's ever been placed on him. and he's been honest about it. And honest with the judge. That's all you can be."
