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
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.
