One of the most important parts of a criminal case is the custody status of the defendant. We understand no one wants to be in jail. Every defendant, as a matter of law, is allowed a bond hearing. At this hearing, your attorney can argue for a reduction of your bond. Every circumstance is different, but this reduction may include: release on a defendant’s own recognizance or posting a surety bond through the use of a bondsman.
IMPORTANT NOTE: In some types of crimes, where victims are involved, there is a statutory notice period before a bond hearing can be heard. This can sometimes be circumvented, however every circumstance is different and it is essential to move on this as quickly as possible.
