If you have been arrested, you will likely be brought before the judge who will determine if you are to be released on your own recognizance (ROR), released with bail, detain or remand you without bail. The purpose of bail is to ensure your return to court. In the event that bail is set in an amount or with conditions that you cannot satisfy, you will likely find yourself in jail, pending the resolution of your case. Ms. Todd is experienced in challenging onerous bail conditions and arguing successfully for reduction in bail so that you can fight your case while at liberty.
The success of your bail application will depend upon several factors, including but not limited to:
- The seriousness of the charges against you
- Your community ties (residence, employment, school, family, etc.)
- Your financial resources
- Your criminal history
- The strength of the prosecution’s case
- Flight risk
Contact our offices immediately so that we can assist you in getting your loved ones home. We will review the facts of your case, speak with co-signers if necessary, and try to get your bail set in an amount that is fair given the facts and circumstances. If you have been charged with a crime and need to get bail, or get your bail reduced, contact the Law Offices of Natali J.H. Todd, P.C., today.
