Bail Reduction in Criminal Cases
Reducing Bail & Arranging Bail Bonds in Plano, TX
When you have been arrested and charged with any criminal offense, it is
likely that you will be required to post
bond. The severity of the offense will influence the bail amount set by the
judge. In some cases, the bail amount is so high that there is little
hope that the accused will be released from jail because the family cannot
come up with the funds to get their loved one released and back home.
In such a case, it may be possible to get the bail reduced through a legal
action taken by a Plano
criminal lawyer at The Zendeh Del Law Firm, PLLC. There are a variety of legal
actions that could benefit an individual who is in custody and unable
to post bond. We urge you to get in touch with our firm to get information
about what can be done to help you get your loved one home.

Filing a Motion to Reduce Bond
When the individual facing charges is unable to pay the bond, he or she
could sit in jail for days, months or longer - even years in some cases,
particularly when the offense is a serious felony. Even though the person
may have several court appearances, the case does not actually move forward
to trial for a long period of time. It can be a devastating situation
for the person as well as the family, to be separated from each other.
This doesn't include the issue of getting released, which must also
be addressed. There are various ways in which a bond can be arranged.
These include employing a bail bondsman, as well as filing of a motion
to reduce bond.
In many cases, it is possible to get the bond amount reduced to an amount
that is reasonable and allows for the individual to be released at last.
It may be necessary to prove to the court that the accused is not a flight
risk, which requires persuasive ability and skill when presenting the
situation to the court. Those who are immigrants to the USA could find
it more difficult to get reasonable bond as the judge may consider that
the individual will merely leave the country and never appear at trial.
Overcoming these barriers is the job of our professional legal team at
the firm. We know the criminal justice process. We can evaluate your case
and determine the best course of action to help you get released from
custody and back to your home where you can be while awaiting trial.
