Bond Hearing Representation
In most cases, an individual accused of a criminal offense is entitled to a reasonable bond set by the court. The accused must post bond with the court in order to be released from jail.
The amount of bail imposed is determined in order to ensure the accused individual does not flee the jurisdiction area prior to a case being resolved.
If a court initially denies an accused individual bond for an alleged crime, the attorney for the accused may then file a motion to set a reasonable bond and set the motion for a bond hearing. At the bond hearing the court would consider the nature and seriousness of the charges, the amount of evidence against the accused as a basis for his or her arrest and detention, as well as the accused’s ties to the community. The less serious the charges and less extensive the evidence, and the greater the accused individual’s ties to the local community, the greater the chance of the court setting a reasonable bond.
Having a knowledgeable and experienced bond hearing attorney making a reasonable legal argument to a judge is the most effective way to convince the courts to impose fair and reasonable monetary levels in regards to bail hearings.
