Bond & Bail Legal Representation
St. Bernard Parish Criminal Defense Attorneys
At The Law Offices of Dan A. Robin, Jr., LLC, we provide representation
for our clients during the bond and bail process, including during first
appearance hearings. Typically, you will take part in this hearing within
24 hours of the
initial arrest, and it is important to have a St. Bernard Parish criminal defense lawyer
at your side during the process. If you or a loved one have recently been
arrested, and are awaiting their first appearance hearing, you may contact
us at our office at any time. Calls made after hours will be transferred
to our answering service, which contacts us if a client is in immediate
need of our services.
During the first appearance hearing, a judge will determine:
- Whether or not the law enforcement officer had probable cause to make the arrest
- The dollar amount of the bond
- Whether or not to decrease or increase the bond amount at a bond reduction hearing
What Is Bail?
Bail is a legal process by which an arrested individual is able to obtain
freedom from police custody by paying a set amount of money. The exact
dollar amount is determined by a judge, who will consider a variety of
factors, such as prior criminal history, the seriousness of the crime,
flight risk, the potential threat that the person poses to the community,
and more. This payment works as a deposit and a condition of release.
Essentially, the individual promises to appear in court for any schedule
criminal proceedings, and is subject to arrest and the loss of the bail
amount if they fail to abide by this promise.
