WHAT DO YOU DO


NO BAIL BOND
(The Following Is Written For Lawyers)

If no bond is set, or if the amount set is too high, you can take two different approaches. But before either is taken, you must first talk to your client and determine how much bail bond he can reasonably make.

Once this is done, call the assistant District Attorney and see if you can agree on a bond amount within your client’s ability to make. If you can agree, draft a consent order signed by the two of you for the judge’s signature, have the judge sign the order, and make sure it is delivered to the jail.

If no agreement can be reached, a bail bond hearing is necessary. The statute says that if there has not been a bond hearing, that a hearing must be scheduled within 10 days of filing the motion for the hearing. The problem is that there is no remedy if the hearing is scheduled beyond 10 days.
